stock shackle removal

I ordered Springtech chevy drop shackles and am ready to install. How do you get to the nut on the top bolt of the shackle to remove the stock one? Do you have to remove the bed to do it?

Any installation instructions would be great. I'm not a mechanic by any stretch.

Thanks

So I don't have to get a wrench on the hidden nut? Are you saying it's a lock nut welded to the bracket?

Thanks for your help!

you might have to wiggle it around when trying to reinstall, but it locks itself in so no need for a wrench on it
