The area where I live used to be very bucolic however it is now quite gentrified. There were a few garage operations with good old boys who would do simple stuff like spring replacement or a hub press for a 12 pack...and some hobnob...however it is all big name now and everyone wants the the whole car rather than the part. Last one I did I rented a spring compressor kit from the tool rental place close by that had the 2 long bolts with claws to grab the springs. It was a dodgy operation but it got the job done. I would spend the money and buy a complete spring/shock unit if available for the car. Our cars are 2 ton battery carriers and they give both the springs and shocks quite a workout...especially if one does a lot of driving where the roads are not well maintained.
