I know theres a strut removal tool for the do-it-yourselfer. But which strut removal tool will work with the struts from a 99 Altima?

ummmm....all you need is the correct size sockets and a breaker bar, WD-40 and a Mcpherson strut spring compressor to compress the springs when removing the struts....

but arent there several different Mcpherson spring compressor? or is there just one universal compressor?

MacPherson strut spring compressors are usually compatible across most coil-around-strut springs. Cars with separate springs/dampers sometimes have a different type of spring compressor (the guys at the local Pep Boys called it a "coil spring compressor"), which fits inside the coil spring and compresses it from there. If your car has coil-over-strut springs all around though, you should not need the latter.
