NE1 know where to buy a spring compressor ???!?!?!?

I seem to be into springs in the last while and a need to swap them. So I'm thinking I may as well pony up for a spring compressor.

Anyone know where to get a decent one ............ recommendations ?!

Or anyone know of someone selling a used one somewhere ???

Would rather own one then have someone do it for me. Scarborough is a bit far to drive to from Woodbridge just to do some springs.

Crappy Tire ............ is generally a disaster unless you know someone there.

Princess Auto sometimes scares me........... some of their tools are complete garbage........... and dangerous.

Was hoping to get lucky and find a shop closing up that may be dumping one. Craigslist Toronto had nothing. Ebay has nothing in Canada.

Just goto Canadian tire... you can "borrow" the tool for free... all you do it pay for the tool in full (like $90) as a deposit, and when u bring it back, they give u all of the money back.
