 Compress one side and chain it up. Then compress the other side and install. What I mean by chaining it is to wrap chain around the compressed springs and put a bolt and washer through it to hold it together. Hope that helps.

 I assumed he was using the type that clamp on the side from the problems he was having. That one you pictured is way better.

That should work try and get it in then start the nut on your balljoint and spindal

there maybe a notch on your bottom control arm that the spring end will sit
