Did you have the rear tire supported by something during reassembly? If so, you may have to remove the support to allow the swingarm to hang lower.

I had this same problem assembling my GL1100 back end, it was tough to get it just right to line up with the holes. I ended up using a trolley jack to gently lift and lower the swingarm to get it just right, then pushed the bolts through.
I got them to go on by securing them to the bottom bolt FIRST and then tapping down on the top of the shock with a maul until it compressed and I could get it on the top shock stud.
