removing / reinstalling the driveshaft on 2005 r1200gs

I did search and read but have not found my answer.

So I changed the oil in the final drive at 24k miles as routine. Decided I'd remove the driveshaft and relube splines while I have it apart.

I got the drive shaft backed off the transmission output shaft but now can't get it out of the swingarm. Tried turning and pulling.

Does the swingarm need to be level/in-line so the shaft is relatively straight with the transmission output shaft? If yes, I'll need to disconnect the rear shock. Can I just undo the bottom shock bolt? How much shock preload is there and will I need some kind of spring compressor to get the shock back in?
