Seems to me your air assist bags were mis-installed. With the bag fully extended it should be longer than the extended leaf and not bottom out when the leaf is fully compressed. The air bag should not be holding the leaf and axel together even with the coach on a frame jack. Unless the bag is installed directly above leaf with u-bolts around the axle housing.
I would get a big ole pry bar and try to work the stuck shackle down bit by bit pushing between the frame and shackle. Sounds brutal but if everything is free very little choice.

No they are the ones that are listed for the chassis and they are installed the right way. Here is the next best part. So now that it is loose and down and out on the one side. Yes I needed a jack and a comealong to pull the shackle out of its mount. The old shackles don't line up with the new ones. New ones 3.5 inches from center to center old one is 4 inch. Of course since it is a gm part it isn't stamped with anything. I am thinking of having a barth fire. This is why GM should have been left to go bankrupt. Thank you GW for saving jobs for people who ride the short bus I guess.
