The springs really aren't that strong, you can get them push them in with your hand.

Anyway, another tip is to take a socket and hammer and give it a quick tap on the retainer before you use the compresor. This will break the keepers loose and make it easier to remove them with the compressor.
I don't know if pvc pipe will hold up, might want to make it out of iron pipe or an old socket.
