Came across my old post and realized I never got back to you.  I eventually used the floor jack strapped to the frame with ratchet straps.  I couldn't quite get the bottom of the springs into the lower control arm recess but I could get it partially in.  While my wife operated the jack I used a couple of crowbars to lift an push the bottoms of the springs all the way in.  Once everything was in line I ran a threaded rod down the center where the shock normally goes and gradually tightened that up as she jacked up on the jack.  Eventually things got close enough for me to put the spindle back on.  Couldn't have done it without your help.  Had some scary moments during this whole process.  Would never do it again. Here are the gory details if you're interested.
