A regular spring compressor doesn't fit right and can be dangerous to use. I think the correct spring compressor is made by Klann.

I've acually done my front and rears without usung a spring compressor. You need a floor jack, and a little mechanical skill, you can carefully remove the spring from the strut without taking the whole thing out and dealing with a compressor. I've done thins about 4 times now, and it takes me about 30minutes to change a front spring.

But you CAN do the work with it. Be careful, and know the risks. That's how I did the work. You can borrow them from O'Reilly Autoparts.
