Dog Bone reinstall question

So I took my lower mount off and installed massive purple poly bushings.
When I went to put it back in I took the bracket off so I had room to slip the dog bone back in. I put the bracket on the small side than slipped the dog bone back in.
Here's my question. How the heck do I get to the top bolt on the bracket? There's no room for a ratchet or a wrench. The rack n pinion is right there.
Can I have the bracket remain installed than slip the dog bone under and in? (MTX75)
It didn't seem to be enough room with the bracket on. I had to pry the mount out with a bar, maybe I can pry it back in with the bracket still installed.
Any suggestions would help!!

Here's the old n new bushings. A much needed upgrade!!
