Spring compressor

So I'd like to get a lift eventually, problem is the kids minivan (that they make me drive) and the wife's 4Runner (that pulls the camper) both need new suspensions too. The mileage is up on both and the rides are bad. Instead of renting a spring compressor for each job I do, I think I may be better of buying one. Question is, what brand/type is best, and can I use it for the TJ springs as well as front struts for the other two vehicles?

Any help is appreciated.

On a side note, the front struts for the Honda Odyssey cost more than the entire lift for my Jeep, that's frustrating in itself.

auto zone should be able to rent you one and give you your deposit back when you return it. I know when i did it they told me i had 4 weeks to return it. 50$ deposit returned to me when i returned the compressor
