I did it twice. As I did manage to get hold of some sufficiently strong 
spring compressors,  I simply reinstalled; but asking around before 
trying I did get the following advice, from someone who had had the same 
challenge with other cars:

Compress the springs adequately while outside the car. Then wind them up 
with lots of string (avoiding, of course, the first turn in each spring 
end). Reinstall and cut your strings.

Will it hold? If in doubt use more and anyway you will know from the 
start already before reinstalling.
