I replaced the uppers in my W123 in about half hour a piece, without using a spring compressor. I believe the same should be possible with the uppers on a W126. The lowers are another story, and I would say about an hour a piece, half of that time is spent getting the old one out. I watched as my old ones were removed on the aforementioned W123, and no spring compressor was used in that instance either.
In short, do the uppers yourself.
