It's been a while since I popped the caps off of a stock fork but, if memory serves, if you have the forks fully extended there will be very little pressure on the caps when they come off. They may have a pound or two of spring pressure on them. Good idea to cover the caps with a rag as you hand-turn the caps the last couple of threads. There may be some drippage. As you hand-turn the caps on the last few threads, press down on them to control the pop.
As you lower the bike, of course, the springs/spacers will rise out of the tubes and there will be drippage. Your call as to whether or not you want to pull the springs out before lowering the bike. I think I would.
