shock spring removal.......... my right side spring will not come out

Shock or fork? If you're talking about the fork, I've read that the disc brake cover bolts and the fork guard bolts are different lengths and that interchanging them will leave a dimple in the fork tube which prevents the spring from coming out. Don't recall the exact fix, but I think it involved sweating the axle clamp assembly off the tube to repair the dimple...... Or buying a new tube....
