I am have trouble getting the upper bolt out for the shackle because the gas tank seems to be in the way. Any advice?

I think I had to use a crowfoot extension to get to mine. I know I had to use the crowfoot in order to torque it properly

I just did this to my 72 today but the gas tank was already removed but it looks like you would be able to pry the shackle side and bolt towards the tank to free the spring eye

I dropped the gas tank down about two inches to get it out of the way to get mine out. Just put a large piece of wood/plywood under it and support it with your jack. Lower it down and the bolt should come right out. Be careful to mind you fuel lines and be sure you do not put any stress on them.
