Tap on it with a big hammer to get it to seat in the hole.

Maybe put a pickle fork in there?

The tapers wouldnt seat by beating on them. I finally just jacked up the lower control arm so i pushed the spindle against the spring and that got em seated well enough to tourque down. Thanks for the input.
