Much easier than dealing with spring compressors for the rear.
That prob. would have been easier for the rear, as you need to remove the rear shock anyways. You would also have to unbolt the rear sway bar on both sides where it connects to the control arm. By the time you unbolt the lower control arm, and the rear sway bar, and then utilize a jack, it would prob. take about the same amount of time, but it might be easier. It only took me about 20 mins to remove and replace the rear spring, and then another 10 to swap out the parts in the rear shock and put it back. So even using the spring compressor I was able to do both rears in about an hour. It would have saved me the time of renting the tool though.
