3 With the strut removed, we slowly lowered the control arm to unload the spring. We've never had luck using a spring compressor to remove front Mustang springs so we just used a pry bar to pop the inner edge of the spring from the control arm, but WATCH OUT! The springs you're removing will determine how much preload they'll still have, and thus how much they jump out of the control arm pocket. Soft V-6 or GT springs will pop out more than most aftermarket lowering springs, which practically fall out by themselves.
