Anti-Roll Bar Bushes

Im in the the process of replacing the front anti-roll bar bushes on my 03 clio. After nearly losing a few limbs getting the old ones off, im trying to fot the new ones.

Because theyre new, theyre obviously thicker and harder than the old ones, which is causing a problem because they need to be compressed to get enough thread to put the nut on at the bottom.

Somehow though, im about 50mm short, the bolt doesnt even pop out of the rubber. Are there any methods to assist?
