The one shown does push up from the bottom, but pulls down on the spring at the top, allowing the top hat to be aligned easily.

No unfortunately it's a Selespeed
The ticking is not very loud and there is no reduction in performance
I recently changed the oil with synthetic
0 - 50 and there is no noticeable reduction in the sound.

Hi (whatever your name is?),

I can confirm the engine oil, plugs, and coolant are all fine. I haven't used the other products so won't comment on those.  You can use the Penrite product selector on their website to confirm your choice.

Don't forget to replace the cabin pollen filter.

Once you've completed the service, you'll need to reset the parameters relating to oil degradation in the engine ECU, along with the standard service reset. If you don't do this you'll constantly have warnings pop up on the display.
The OBDII multipin plug is behind the panel under the steering column.

All the best.

Thereís a comparable tool at the back of the shop I sometimes haunt, the main difference is it pushes the top down at the spring ďsaddleĒ, not the bottom up. The ability to lock in perfect alignment with the dealer tool, was why it appealed.

Interestingly, the genuine tool with accessories is sub $1K per the Euro parts houses. Iíd have expected much more.
New South Wales / 147/156 Front Strut Factory Compressor

Wondering if any of the Sydney indies have the factory kit for compressing and reassembling struts.

About to swap over my front shocks and remembering the "fun" last time with maintaining ideal alignment of the top hat and strut body.
I use a 240 Impact Wrench with 400nm, and it gets the nut off every time, so hopefully yours will too.
Itís a 18v cordless Rockwell from SCA - 380nm.
Havenít tried yet (more grinding of socket required)
If this doesnít do it maybe I should look at a breaker bar or a power impact bar - SCA have a Toledo rated up to 950 nm.
Got to get a good fit with the socket first.
