Hi mate, it's very risky not using spring compressors on the front. Where I haven't done the rears on the rolla myself, I have done them on a Polo GTi, and it has the same rear suspension setup. And the springs just dropped out easily, and the new ones went in even easier. If you're concerned it's a real easy job to take to a wheel place and get them to do, they don't need to remove the rear trim out of the boot, so it's hard to see them getting it wrong.

Cheers, Gav.
