In preparation of saying goodbye to my 9C1, I am removing my tubular front LCA's and putting the old ones back on so it can be hauled away.
Do I need to compress the springs or will the arms just fall away?

No, you don't. Just keep a jack under them and let it out SLOWLY and you can then remove the spring and control arm.
