The aluminium 'cup' you're tilting in the pic is actually 2 pieces,

the 'cup' and an 'outer spring seat' which you must tap towards the spring to expose a lock ring.

 

Myself insert 2 flat metal files between the shock spring and cup, then tap with a plastic mallet.

That recess often packs up with dried dirt, spray some WD-40 etc. and let it soak for a few minutes.

 

Once the lock ring is removed the outer 'spring seat' can then pass around the cup and clevis (shackle)

also allowing the shock spring to be removed.
