Yeah, you REALLY want that inner spring tool. The tension on that inner spring/wire makes it really difficult to do without the tool. a Vise-grip locking pliers on each end of that spring is another way.

You really need both tools.  The springs are really strong and it's almost impossible to put them on the boot.

Although I haven't changed any LG door boots, I've had a few front panels off.  I haven't found the front clamp to be any more difficult to install than a Whirlpool clamp.  I hold the left end of the spring in place with my knee.  Then I use both hands to work the wire into place.  Takes maybe 15 seconds.
