Product Description

This trick Maximum Motorsports tool is invaluable when installing lowering springs on a Mustang. This Mustang Front Spring Install Tool bolts to the Front Control Arm, and guides the bottom coil of the Front Spring into its proper position on the Front Control Arm as the arm is swung up into place with a floor jack. The tool is then easily dismounted from the control arm, and is removed through the access hole in the arm. The often-frustrating task of 1979-2004 Mustang Lowering Spring installation is made quick and easy with this Maximum Motorsports tool!

Note: Not for use with stock Mustang springs or Drag Launch Springs because of their long free length. A spring compressor is required to install stock springs or Drag Launch Springs. Will not work with aftermarket tubular-type control arms.

5 Stars   Quick tip with slightly longer springs.
By on 4/22/2014
The tool works great but... One thing I found on FMS drop springs which aren't a huge drop like pro springs can make this tool difficult to use. If you don't use the isolators and want a harsh ride then no problem it works. If you use isolators poly in my case they will not slide over the tool. Make sure you do not rotate the spring to an area where there is no isolator on the sping to get it to slide in or you will cover the drain holes in stock arm perch. The isolator material can cause enough friction to keep you from sliding the spring over the spring tool. Don't fight it! Immediatly put some dish soap on the spring tool and you can easily slide the spring on with isolators in place. This tool makes the job super easy.

I bought the MMT-8 tool and i installed my coil springs with the greatest of ease. It is by far the best 20 bucks i have ever spent! Now my 89 GT is sitting beautifully on drop spring's and i have all 10 fingers. So simple but so useful. Thank you Latemodel Restoration. I would rate 20 stars if i could.

5 Stars   Fast, Easy, and Safe
By on 5/6/2015
Image uploaded by Julian G. The tool Installs quick, and guide's the spring into position without wandering. I first attempted with spring compressors, they did not get the job done and left my springs scratched a bit. So i purchased this tool to install Eibach lowering springs and BBK Isolators on my 89 LX. The Isolators slide along the tool without any friction, pinching, or binding. I was installing fresh LMR control arms so i wrapped a single layer of electrical tape around the area's of the tool that clamp the control arm, as not to damage the control arms finish. The install was fast, effortless and above all, SAFE. I also purchased the Maximum Motorsports Rear Axle Bushing Tool, and am impressed with the quality of the tools. They are built strong, designed well, and MADE IN THE USA.

5 Stars   Saved the Day!!!
By on 2/11/2016
I have been doing suspension work for 25 years. Was an ASE cert. Chassis tech in the 90s. Can't tell you how many front springs I've put in. Last weekend, I just could not get the springs in my 88 GT. I'm getting old. After fighting it. I came in and ordered this tool. Got here, today when they said it would. Came home from work with it sitting at my front door. Went out to pop the springs in. BAM!! 10 minutes and they were in. Not one fight.
Just an awesome invention, this tool is. If you do front springs on a Fox. Get this tool.
Go on.....DO IT!!

5 Stars   Great Tool; You Need This
By on 10/29/2016
I am not the most mechanical in the world and wanted to change out my old nasty springs for new SVE lowering springs. I worked for more hours than I would like to admit and couldn't get the springs in. Finally, I went on line and saw there is a tool for the install. Don't be a dummy like I was and think you can install your springs with a prybar. With the tool I had my springs the first try on each side no hassle. Highly recommended!

By on 1/29/2015
I tried doing my spring install without this tool couldn't fit the isolators on put it all back together and it was not right and it to me a day of cussing at it to put it all together. I decided that if I wanted to do it right I needed this tool. Thus is the best thing I could have bought made the spring install a breeze finished both side in less than an hour and a half after spending a whole day fighting it.

By on 3/24/2015
Image uploaded by Eric V. Bought this after reading reviews about supposedly "needing" it to install springs in fox.... YES after using tool there is no way I would want to try and wrestle the spring in without it. It works super slick and really sped up install, also I felt safer installing spring if nothing else. Use dish soap on ramp part and spring will slide in very easy.

I have a 95 mustang gt and the coil springs are long. This simplified the installation. Spring compressors are definitely needed. Be sure to get frame high enough so the control arm is vertical. Hang spring on tool, then force top of spring into mount, then use floor jack on ball joint to raise control arm.
