SOURCE: need to replace front struts
A "normal" coil spring compressor won't usually work on struts. A strut compressor works from both ends of the assembly. You can remove the entire strut and spring without removing the spring, then you place it into the compressor, increase tension just a bit and remove the top bearing and mount plate , relieve the tension, remove the strut and reverse the procedure to re-assemble it.

I would check the lower control arm bushings and sway bar bushings for the squeak,and the shaken when breaking means you have warped rotors,if it shakes in the steering wheel its the frt,if the whole car shakes then it usaaly means it is in the rear rotorsor drums.

any strut you need to compress the spring before you crack that top center bolt its potentially dangerous dummies been hospitalized from flying springs get a good compress not super squeezed get the resistance off the nut just a half inch gap then take off spring load spring and when you load look at the bottom of the spring has a cut on the coil seat it right the coil sits the cut end on the bottom seat ....

SOURCE: 2002 Elantra GT Strut question
I have a chrysler grand Voyager where it has been involved in an accident before I purchased it, I`ve found out that the front offside strut is bent so I need to replace it. I`ve got the manual to me car and found out that It`s quite an easy job on the Chrysler because there are two 21mm bolts that lock the hub carrier and just three 13mm nuts at the top of the tower. I`ve already had them loosened ready for the replacement part. The problem with mine though is as soon as you release the two 21mm bolts, I will lose the camber angle so I`m going to make some measurements before I remove the strut. Why have I told you all this?? I`m wondering if your car will have the same system as regards Camber and Toe In settings. Ian
