Shackel ?

I have a question regarding the installation of some lowering shackel on my truck. The question is how did you get the bolt removed from the top of the shackel. On my truck (08 GMC Sierra)the bed has a seam that runs right above the shackle on each side, when I try to lift the rear of the spring up to remove the bolt, it hits the bottom of the bed, and I can not get the bolt out, ( like about 1/4 inch or so). I have installed shackels before and always had of room, to get the bolts out. Thanks in advance.

The first option is probably what I 'm going to end up doing, I just hate to bend/beat on my truck to install something as simple as a shackel, but at least it is in a spot where it will not be seen. I like your avatar also, they are one of my favorite bands, and just recently got to see them, it was a experience I will never forget.
