OK, I put all the posts together, and edited everything for continuity.

I've been here before, it's not the end of the world.

can you release the compressor with the spring like that? if so, you need to grab a LOT more coils, and get it back in place.
the problem seems to be the rubber cap on top is not installed correctly.
if you lift the LCA with the jack, and can get the spring to recompress, you may be able to get the tool to grab more coils...
there's no magic with these things, if YOU don't line everything up, and get everything to seat as you release it, this can happen...
