I recommend against this, as you have the potentially dangerous task of compressing the springs using a proper tool to swap from the old struts to the new struts. Also air tools help out on this job significantly.
Thats true, the only problem I can see you having if you plan on installing the whole assy is getting the pinch bolt out at the bottom of the strut. They like to seize up and they require heat. If they seize stop and do not force it or you will plull the threads out of the spindle assy.
