Exclamation 02 Ranger leaf spring shackle help!

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger XLT. The rear driver side shackle broke and im in the middle of replacing it but ran into some problems. I got the shackle off and got the hanger off but i still had on the bolt that connects to the leaf spring it self. I cant get the thing out. I got the one side of the nut off and im trying to get the thing to go through but it wont budge. I've tried using a hammer and a punch and an air chisel and it still wont give. Any ideas to help me this thing is really pissing me off haha.

you might have to cut it off, it could be seized in there

would that make sense to do though? it should come right out with force. If i cut it off that would just be leaving half of the thing inside it.
