Question Rear Spring installation

I replaced my rear integral link, MAJOR PITA. I had to remove the spring to get it in. Any spring compressor you can recommend? I am trying to find this one. It works perfect on x5.

You don't need a spring compressor. You have to disconnect a few things to allow the swing arm to drop low enough, but they come out.
