An impact will spin the nut off without turning the shaft, no problem. You don't even really need a spring compressor either. I have a spring compressor and it stayed in my toolbox when I installed my Tanabe's.
They say that so you don't over torque the nut. I have an impact that is only about 50bls, within the spec of the evo. I have been using them of years on struts without any trouble. If you like, you can take the nut off with a impact and install using a socket/ratchet. You may install it with a impact turned down low then check it with a torque wrench. It's only 45bls +/- 7lbs.
Hope this helps.
