You can use a standard valve spring compressor and just get some pipe and cut windows (to install/remove keepers) in it.
Chrysler specifys a Miller Tool, I have one and it's very nice.

I've taken lots of these apart and only once saw guides that were bad. Guide seals last forever too- Some problems with exhaust valves, not super rare, tho.

In short, resist the urge to disassemble the head unless there's an actual problem.
