U-Shackle installation

I bought new front springs and new shackles for my '46. The springs came with front bushings that I had to press out, now I find the 'threaded shackles' are a tight squeeze for the spring eyes. Do I just bear down on them and screw them into the eye as part of the install procedure? I understand the actual spring motion comes from the 'inner threads'. Thanks.

Been tearing this thing down since Dec 2001, finally got a welder for some frame repair and slowly, painfully slow, getting it back together.
