I hear ya. I recently did the same thing using the Harbor Freight clamshell compressor. when I undid the upper a arms to replace the bushings, the spring fell out, no big deal. But reinstalling, since the bushings and all were back in... I had to uncompress and recompress more coils, and the spring fit. But then I had to completely disassemble the compressor and pound the hooks out from between the coils. It was a bear.
Factory spring compressor? Seems worth it for stock springs.
