Default how to get highlifter coill springs in? Compressor?

Hey fellas, got a 06 grizz 660. Upgrading front coils to highlifter springs. Got stock coil/shocks out by lifting bumper up with a jackall and having tire off i pulled off the spring/shock. Now i have no idea how to get the coil off the shock assembly? On the bottom is the spring adjuster (can crank spring for stifffer ride) so i know coil is not coming off that end. On the top side there is some kind of metal lip holding coil on shock, no idea how to get this off so i can slide new coil over oem shock. Do i need a coil spring compressor? Holding highlifter coil beside coil that is still under pressure of oem shock, it looks like highlifter coil is 4" longer or so than oem, possibly cause oem is still under pressure on shock. How the hell you guys getting these highlifters on? A C-clamp defenetly dont work, tried that, lol. I have no idea how to get oem coil off oem shock when i have it in my hand completely off the grizz. Any input would be great! these stock coils on front of my grizz gotta go! thanks, guys
