I know im late. But for anyone else that experiences this problem i had a hell of a time doing this.

when mine rusted out i didnt want to unbolt the fronts in fear of snapping the bolts because my truck is an old rusty-but-trusty.

no matter waht i didn to jack up the truck i couldnt get the spring low enough to line up the shackle bolt. what i ended up having to do (which i dont recommend because it could be dangerous but in a pinch it works) is lock a chain around the back end of the spring and hook the other end to the base of the jack. then jacked it up slowly. This held the spring in place while the truck rose above it.

hope it helps.
