yeah but only with a ratchet as you need to stop the nut from fly off and taking out your eye
(btw where safty glasses) it will give you a shock the first 1 you do so just (BE CAREFULL)
make sure you undo it really fast and (BE CAREFULL)

spring compressor just compress the spring down taking the presser off the top shocker bolt making it easyer to undo the bolt with no presser on it and nothing will or can fly off

spring compressors are only like $40 at super cheap
