And of course whatever else you want to replace while you're in there! Some ideas may be shock mounts, bump stops, rubber boots, bolts and other hardware, any brake parts, wheel bearings, suspension bushings even...
My friend who is a mechanic is doing this job for me. i dont think he has a spring compressor at his shop. jack and stands and a bunch of other tools he has.

Is there anyway around to getting the shock onto the strut without a compressor?

Are you referring to suspension bushings on the control arms?

And I have zimmerman brakes all around.
