you don't need a spring compressor for the fronts if you are changing to superlows.

get one person to stand on the spring (and watch their other foot, don't put it at the bottom of the shock!!), and rattle off the other end (hold loosely) - because you are using a socket the nut will stay in the socket, the shock will move a few cm (or inches) and so will the rattle gun.

you can put the supers back in without a compressor, using that same friend again one pushes down while the other starts the nut.
