Exhaust Pipe Retainer Springs

Ok, I am sure everyone is familiar with those retaining springs that are put on the pipes when you install an exhaust...am I crazy or is there a tool to assist with this?

You know what I am referring to? It is the spring that holds one section of pipe to another.

Thanks in advance!

I've made my own before. I took a flat screwdriver and ground the tip so it was V shaped. made it a simple task to push the spring onto the holder.

There are tools for this as well, I suggest a Tucker Rocky catalog search, if you want to go that route, but you could make one as I did, or if you need a hook type tool, just take an awl and heat the tip and carefully bend it into a hook.

I like to use the good old fashioned vise-grips. All it takes is a little elbow grease. But the home made tools sound like a great idea also.

I like JOybo's idea. I have always used a pair of needle nosed pliers and a fair share of cuss words.

Actually I used more cuss words prior when I was using the screwdriver. For the first time in my life, the needle nose actually worked great.

I will be honest, I am very exciting to get this thing done and out on the dunes or trails. It is begging to be driven for sure!

did you have a groove cut in the screwdriver? I used to use vice grips but where I would crush the metal on the spring hook it would break off right there. Needlenoses just gave me skinned knuckles.. I finally did the screwdriver mod and that just worked bitchen. I can take a picture if you want

In the sledding world we use a T-Handle Tool, with a hook on the end. Bought one at a sled dealer.

Yeah, I have seen those and I made my own with an awl. I liked the screwdriver mod as it was easier to use on the springs on a 250R because of clearance issues using the T handle type.
