That is where the prybar or getting crafty with the ratchet strap come in. You jack the lower up until the truck is almost floating and then pry the upper down and put the nut on....It's a good time.
and the upper A-arm is a bit of a trick and this is how I did it. You can jack the lower A-arm up a little but not too much as to lift the rig and then pry the upper A-arm(balljoint) down into the knuckle, If your crafty enough you could use a ratchet strap to help you out if you can't tighten the nut.
