just chuck them SOB's up in the vise and use a spanner wrench , back off the preload nut and it will be free after about 10 turns .. didn't need a spring compressor of any type [would have been a lil easier but wd40 to clean the threads before and armstrong preload nut spanner and good to go LOL
BTW I used 350 lb springs and like the results
