Control arm issues

So I'm installing an OME lift on my 99 today. I've got the rear end done, and the coils in the front. The left lower control arm went right in. The right front, not so much. Any suggestions on how to make this easier? I was thinking of Andre the giant pulling the axle forward, must if there's another way......

With the weight of the vehicle on the ground, just rock the jeep back and forth...it will line up.

There's always the option of using a come-a-long. I had to use one for my rear axle to get the control arm lined up.
