Cheap spring compressor can be made from two pieces of 3/8 or 1/2" threaded rod and a couple heavy duty exhaust flanges from the auto parts store. Just have to take the shock with you to find a flange that will slip over the end but still catch the plates/collar to compress the spring. Looks like this...

Just tighten each nut a few turns at a time to keep them even as you compress/release.
