Default New coil springs

Hi all,
I just purchased a pair of new front coil springs from thunderbirdhq. The old coils had been cut by the previous owner making the car too low and also lop sided.

In reading the manual I should be able to push the lower wishbone with my foot and hook the spring on and then lift it back up the the jack. The spring appears to be far too tall to do this.

I was looking an using the coil spring compressors on the inside of the coil but I don't think I'll be able to undo them to take them out again. If I put them on the outside of the coil I don't think then will fit up in the frame.

I'm wondering if the coils are make to the original specs.

Has anyone had experience with this?

Thanks

Dave
