what kind of compressor did you get? i have not done the springs on a sube but its usually fairly easy. jack it up. take the wheel off. apply the compressor and compress the springs. remove the nuts and bolts that hold that shit to the car.

you have to remove the strut from the car, compress the spring, and then un-screw the 17mm bolt that runs through the top hat and the rest is pretty self explanatory.
just let me know if you need anymore help!
