Yes. You can remove them without spring compressors too.

Set jack stands on frame behind lower control arm mounts. Remove tires. Disconnect swaybar. Disconnect lower shock mounts. Jack up one side of axle. Press down on the other. My 3" springs will come right out. Stock springs will be easier.
Here's a crappy cell phone pic.
