+1 Like Joe said, pull the assembly and have a shop take that apart for you. Those springs are deadly.
Post a pictures of what's broken. You should be able to pull the spring/shock assembly with no problem. Just leave that center nut alone!

Wish I had a place to work on my car... Apartment complex was not happy that I changed my brake pads in the parking lot. Lol. I think mine is broken as well probably have a shop do it with new shocks..
