Also you should not use a impact on the spring compressor. Thats the primary cause of them failing and some guy getting himself hurt.

We were safe. I only did that with one of them (rear) and in equal amounts on either side.
Afterwards I used the socket with the ratchet and it worked a lot easier than with the adjustable wrench.
