having trouble with the shackle twisting the spring???
try heating the bolts with a torch and prelubing them with some penatrating oil
when that fails i used a really friggn big breakerbar/flexhandle and a length of pipe.

------------------
i didnt break it, i was just testing its durability

Drill through the bushing all the way around the bolt on the shackle, and wack the bolt with a big hammer. It should pop out.
