I removed the lower control arm. Then put the spring in with a jack under the control arm. Had to run a ratchet strap to the other side to keep the jack from moving. It took several tries to find the best spot for the jack so it went in correctly.
If you cut the spring any, you will lose some of what it is designed to do.

I place the spring in the pocket of the a-arm, then compress it down, lift it into place, and attach the strut.

If your spring compressor is hitting the upper pocket, then place the plate/fork a few coils lower.

Yes, those springs are longer, but they compress a lot.
