Now I'm really confused. Why are we talking about spring compressors and pushing down on the struts? No disassembling of the suspension was required to replace the brake lines. It was just a simple get the car up on jack stands, remove the wheels, remove the brake lines, install the new brake lines, bleed/replace fluid, reinstall wheels, put the car back down.
