Progressive 416 Shock Squeezer/Compressor

Post by pocketchange »



I've about given up locating the #5500 PS 416 shock compression tool.
Now, I'm open to suggestion on squeezing the shock together in an effort to rebuild my old pair.
Anyone have an idea that doesn't involve dropping the blades of a forklift or lowering a car lift on the shock.
Something cheap would be good... pc

Nope,
Unless the tool is a #5500, it will not compress a internally sprung 416 air shock. pc
