02 Home made shock compressor for softail tutorial

In this episode Custom Cez builds a shock compressor for all softail suspensions with just a few bucks worth of materials.

In this video we'll build the compressor using scrap materials and in a little more than 30 minutes. Using some left over metal from other builds and a threaded rod and nuts bought for just a few euros Custom Cez will show you how to build this DIY tool instead of spending 60 bucks to get it in a store.

This is a simple project for anyone that wants to take apart his shock absorbers to fix them or modify them

What do you need:

  • a piece of left over sheet metal
  • a piece of re-bar or steel tubing
  • a 1 inch diameter threaded rod with 2 nuts
  • welder
  • grinder and other tools
