Depending on what tools you have on hand. If you have one of those higher end hydraulic spring compressors? Sure. If you have one of those Harbor Freight specials? It'll take a lot more than 5 minutes.
And I have a feeling the guys with the fancy hydraulic spring compressors will probably charge more for his/her time.
