    Posted: 26 May 2020 at 6:26am

You guys know what a pain it can be to change shocks. It can be a real bear to compress the rubber bushings to get the cottter pin installed. Several guys asked, so I made a few more of my shock bushing compressor tools. I know many of you can make one in your own shop. But I realize not everyone has the tools and equipment to do so. Its more work than you might think; cutting, machining welding etc.

It works at top and bottom, front and rear of my CJ2A. At the bottom, I use a piece of 1" board to space it off the brake backing plate.

These are $35 shipped priority mail in the US. Please PM me if interested. Thanks.

I have a few more shock bushing tools left in case anybody needs one now, or in the future.  I don't know if I'll make any more.  I have too many other projects going on.
