Removing coil springs

I am in the middle of replacing my front suspension in my 1969 Camaro. I am getting new coil springs, how do I get the old ones out. A friend of mine on his monte carlo uses the spring compression tool as the entire coil spring is exposed. On the Camaro only the bottom part of the coil is exposed. I need to find out as that is where I am at now. I am also taking the A arms out to put in new bushings. Thanks, Jerod

Re: Removing coil springs

Pricey, but I figured I need to take them out and put them back in and I didn't want to scratch the springs up in the install - so bought one of these. Easy to use:

'69 RS Z28 Cortez Silver, Original Driveline, M22, 73K, Van Nuys Built, Chassis Broadcast Copy
'69 Chevelle SS396 4SP, Fathom Green, Original Engine
'06 GTO Brazen Orange, M6, 400HP LS2
