I thought my car was riding too high, but it turns out the spring shackles had been flipped, placing the spring under the frame mount. I went to put the springs back above the bracket and, because they are new, they sprung and hit the body. Has anyone jacked them down in place in order to reinstall the shackle? Also, my shackle shafts are bent and the springs don't line up with the rear frame mount. Is this normal? I have tried a big C clamp, and a bottle jack, but can't get the new spring in position to but the bent shackle through the hole. There is nothing like being on your back on a piece of cardboard on the ground trying to muscle a leaf spring in place and start a nut with one hand.
