I would pre-compress the spring with the tool then hold It compressed with a bunch of winding of steel wire. Once you have the bolts in place you can cut the wire with a diagonal cutters.

Else: if you can get one side in and just need to swing the bottom up you use a floor jack to gently lift the bottom of the arm until you can get the bolt in.
