How difficult was it using the spring compressor? I have done tons of coil-over installs before on my various cars including two e46 M3's, but have never installed drop springs. I recently ordered some H&R springs and plan on doing the install myself. Am a little worried about using the spring compressor in fear that it will slip or fail and the spring will shoot out and hurt someone, the car, or something else. Is it straight forward using the compressor and is it pretty sturdy? Would love some input on this. TIA.
