RE 3.5" Install help ! How to drill a hole in the rear track bar bracket ?

I'm just waiting for my 3.5" RE Super Flex to arrive and I have been reading the install instructions from, they mention to drill 2 holes in the rear trackbar bracket and original trackbar mount, one in the top and one in the angled side of the original trackbar mounting location, I just taked a look at my jeep and don't figure out how to drill the one in the top, space is tight there !!!
I think that everyone that has installed this suspension kit was in the same situation, how do you resolved that ? Any advice or tip ? Thanks !

Support the frame by jackstands, unbolt the shocks from the axle and then unbolt the lower anti-swaybar links. Then lower the axle down with via the floor jack it was supported with and you will have much better (but stilll not great) access. I've drilled that bracket and while it's not easy, it can be done after unbolting the shocks and swaybar links to give the axle as much droop as possible.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
