I just started to consider replacing all my shocks. If I am JUST going to replace them...(more)

with OEM fits, not changing springs, do I need this spring compressor ? I have a generic one that we use on other cars, will that work ? btw..I am currently leaning towards Bilstein HD shocks...

No, unfortunatly the generic spring compressor will not work on the SLK springs.

If you are just replacing your shocks you should not need a spring compressor, regardless of brand of shocks.

Spring Compressors allow you to remove and install your suspensionsprings. So if you have purchased and set of RENNtech springs and want to install them you use the spring compressor to compress and remove the old springs. Then you use it to compress and install the new springs.
