Shock Replacement

Based on some past posts folks are saying Coil Springs will last 200K+ miles (I'm currently at 131K) and I was looking to swap out the Shocks. To date, every DIY article is a Coil Springs & Shocks article.

1. I'm trying to avoid buying the HD Coil Compressor
2. Obviously avoid removing the Coil Springs
3. Just want to change the shocks

Is it possible just to do Step 5 on the Pelican Parts Coil Springs Shock Replacement and reverse the process or are there some gotchas that I need to be worried about?
