    I'm almost 100% sure that the springs have to come off as the sleeve has to be slid on to the lower part of the spring. Basically it looks like 8" of hose pipe and acts as a cushion between the spring and the bottom plate that the spring sits in.

    However, thinking about it, if you're careful you might be able to compress the spring in situ with a spring compressor and slide the sleeve on.

    You can indeed do it just by compressing the springs - at the back. At the front, you might struggle to get a spring compressor in place, so you'll have to remove the strut and the compress the spring (without disassembling the strut).
