You don't need a spring compressor for this job. Just put a jack under the lower control arm. Support the body with a jackstand.

Here's a novel method done on a W124 - same as a W201
Snapped wishbone ball joint - Page 5 - Mercedes-Benz Owners' Forums

The proper tool is only around $150.00. You don't need to compress the spring.
