Other than renting or buying, i had a friend that took his struts and springs off together and drove (a different cat btw) down to the tire store (Les schwabs) and they disassembled it for free! And you more than likely will not need a spring compressor to install coils..... actual Lowering springs on the other hand you proably would want to rent/ buy one.

So call around having them take them apart might be cheaper than renting.
