Rear coil spring removal

I'm halfway through the 2" budget lift on my TJ. Got the fronts done, no problems other than replacing the sway bar and shock hardware. I copied the "no spring compressor needed" method seen on YouTube and it worked easy.

I'm stalled out on completing the rear lift because I found that one of the rear coils is missing about 2 turns of spring off the top. The inside diameter at the top of the spring is actually larger than the coil lift puck.

While I wait for the new springs to arrive, can anyone elaborate how to perform the "no spring compressor needed" method for the rear coils. Can it be done? After disconnecting the sway par and shocks, is it as simple as just pry the rear axle down and the spring can be removed? The videos I found only show that as an option for front coils and folks seem to still use compressors for the rear springs.

jack up the opposite side so the side you're working on droops down, spring should basically fall out
