You might have to pop the knuckle side TRE out to get the droop you need for pulling the springs. Drag link can affect droop but generally not a limiting factor as there's enough articulation in the TREs in regular service. As you learned, getting that that extra you need to swap springs can be an issue on passenger. Removing the track bar bolt at the bracket, and the knuckle side TRE usual will allow you to drop them right out.
