Questions?? RC8T Droop Screws

Last week I bought an RC8T after being out of the hobby for many years. I got it all together, the issue I am having is that the droop screws are installed from the bottom of the A-arms per the instruction manual, but that leaves no easy way to adjust them without removing the front and rear bulkheads.

So today I took them out and installed them from the top, which makes it easier to adjust. I'm not convinced this is the best solution, so I wondering what others have done or wondering if there is an easier way to adjust the screws without removing the bulkheads if they are installed from the bottom.

TYIA.

I thought you can adjust using allen wrench from either end of the screws.
Your screws have hex on both ends?

Sigh... you are correct. I guess that's a demerit for my observation skills.
