    If I remember the top one is a bit of a pain. I just used a vise-grip and turned it till it got in enough to use a ratchet. Not too much of a pain, worth the trouble to have the disks in the back.

    I ground one side of the pin head flat so it could slide...no effect on strength, but that 1/8" of space made all the difference.
