The front shock is a McPherson strut and a sealed unit. The shock and spring are all mounted together. They have to be removed, the spring and top mounting hardware swaps over to the new strut.

do you need spring conpressers to change the spring or is the shock long enough to deconpress

If they are standard height springs, then yes, you will need spring compressors.
