is the spring physically to large ti fit into the cup? sometimes its tight but you should be able to apply some silicone spray to it or a bit of grease and slide the hate over the top

put a spring compressor on both sides of the spring so its compressed evenly

Compare your EF springs with these and see if there's much difference in diameter at the top. Also examine length, etc...
