That's exactly it! No compressor needed. Keepin mind you'll want to drop both at the same time so that you aren't fighting the sway bar. Before you drop the struts, mark where the banana washers is in relation to the towers so that your camber remains close after you bolt everything back together. Then if you drop the struts down as far as you can and pull them all the way to the outside, you can finagle the plate in from the engine side. The hardest part is keeping the top of the mount from spinning while you try to get the plate on all three studs.
Great! Thank you for the explanation. I need to tackle this on the grey wagon.
