Default Front leaf springs

OK folks. Whats the secret to getting a front leaf spring installed on an 89 EZ Go. I can't get the front of the spring to line up with the hole for the bolt to go into. I realize there has to be tension but just can't figure it out. Any clues for this dummy?

When i changed one the old spring pulled the axle at an angle, have someone line up the spring for you and just yank the axle whatever way it needs to go.

Thanks for the reply. I THINK I've come up with an idea for a spreader that will give me the 1/2 inch or so that I need. I'll try it today and let you know what happened.

Got it. Once I removed the shock absorber, I could get a little play in the axle. Had another guy with a pry bar move the axle a little until the spring fell into place. Got the top bracket on and tightened every thing up. Guess the secret was to remove the shock but I never said I was smart. Thanks for the help.
