Trouble re-installing stock springs

I am nearly complete putting my car back to stock.. the last remaining part was the h&r springs to be swapped out for the old stock ones. I dropped my car off at the shop yesterday and they gave me a call today and said they are completely puzzled about how to compress these springs. They have tried everything. They are a very reputable shop who specializes in german cars. Has anyone else tried to return their springs back to their suspension and had similar troubles?

it is a pain in the ass getting the front struts in and out.... i believe the easiest way would probably be to start unbolting things at the lower control arm..

i have somehow managed though to remove the stock suspension, install kw v1's, remove them and install eibach pro kit springs on koni fsd's...... but it WAS a pain in the ass and required some serious muscle
