Overland WJ front shocks, bottom mounts pressed in? need help ASAP!

hey guys, my friend has a 02 overland WJ and we completed the rear lift already but are having one heck of a time with the front

the shocks and springs are already out but now that we are trying to install the new shocks we have come across the issue of what seems to be the bottom mount bolts being pressed on, we have the physical shock out already, but we need that little metal spanner piece in order to reinstall the new shocks...

does anyone know how to remove the bolts so we can pull the spanner out? thanks in advance!

My lift came with new "bar pins" (the metal spanner you are referring to), but the best way around it would be to get some bar pin eliminators, I recently upgraded to the IRO ones: http://www.ironrockoffroad.com/Merch..._Code=IR-SBPEK
