Maybe.  You are looking at it at full compression, which is probably a smart strut at full extension, haha!

I made a Smart spring compressor out of wood and M10 threaded bar.450springcompressor.jpeg

Top and bottom plates made from MDF worktop off cut.  Short length of garden hose to protect spring coating.

This is basically what I made up using two bearing splitters years ago for bike rear springs. Very simple and safe.....wood is far cheaper as each bearing knife spliter or puller was $25!!!! But it works far safer than many many hose clamps, which is how i did my first coil spring refit...lol.
