Default shackle removal 36

I am having trouble removing rear shackles on 36 5w coupe. Can't find sweet spot to release pressure so bolts will come out. I have car sitting on jackstands, rear wheels are off ground, using KR Wilson spring spreader. Questions: 1. Should I remove u bolts from springs? 2. At what orientation should shackles be at when they are at minimum binding, Pointed up, horizantal to ground, pointed down? I have removed the 2 nuts and plate on one side, tried air hammer, chisle, large screwdriver, pry bar, but the bolts will not budge. Any help appreciated. Benji
