Default compressing coils on 245's strut assembly...imminent disaster

I'm using these widowmaker coil spring compressors on my 1983 245 wagon. They are about 3/4's if not more compressed and the top coil is showing no sign of separating from the top strut plate.

I'm nervous to keep winding on this imminent time bomb.

best to remove the brake line from the hardline and let a shop do it?

what does Turbobricks say?
