67 Camaro rear spring problem

My 67 Camaro mono leaf shackles are faceing towards the front, and the spring is against the frame. I just bought the car and tried to replace the shocks and discovered that the shocks were in at full extention and were locked up. New shocks will not reach down to the bottom bracket. If I remove the shackle bolts can I get the shackles to head towards the back as they should? The springs are a correct Moog mono spring.

Are the shackles the OEM shackles, if not replace them with OEM?

The bottom spring plates are different between mono & multi.. And chance those are wrong?

I have a 68 in the garage that I can get you shackle measurements and spring measurements if you need.
