I don't think you need a shock compressor for the rear.

No you dont need a "shock compressor". The fix is really easy all you need is a wrench set and your bottle jack.

Take off the wheel remove the broken shock. let axle drop, put in new shock jack up the axle and install lower shock eye. Thats pretty much it.

Your truck shouldn't sink when standing in it unless you also jacked up your leaf springs somehow.

Its actually much simpler than that. No need to remove the tire or jack up the truck.
