^^^ you should be able to compress with your hands. Grab the top section and pull down. Once compressed, you can pull it out bottom bolt first.

If its too difficult, then place a jack under the LCA. Of course, that's assuming the rest of the car is supported by stands.. Jack up the LCA so that the shock is compressed. Then quickly drop the jack. Pull out the shock before it expands again.
