Didn't mean to infer the spring had to be compressed if one had the proper tool. What I was attempting to say was since I didn't have access to the proper tool, I wanted to use the 12 ton shop press to push the BJ's in and out. To do so, I would have to remove the arm from the car. This would require removing the spring (unless I'm completly missing something)

To me a $150 tool is only for someone who plans to repeatedly perform a repair, not a DIYer on his own car. no return on that investment. Just my opinion.
You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime you just might find you get what you need.
