paul2748 is on a distinguished road
Did you get the springs in? It's actually a two man operation. Attach the rod to the spring and then grab the rod with a vise grip and stretch it so you can get the end of the rod into the hole. It's tough, but can be done. I'm 72 and I stretched it. Thus is where the second person comes into play - he has to screw on the nut while you are holding the rod in the hole.

Good luck
