You might consider what @jasum mentioned. I don't have wet bolts (TorFlex suspension) but remember an article (probably Trailer Life) about installing a wet-bolt kit where they installed the middle bolts "facing" in instead of out to make access for greasing easier. If your suspension geometry is particularly tight, this might be easier than a few attempts at repositioning until you get it right.

I don't think that bolt orientation should have any effect on performance, but you might want to check with the manufacturer to be certain.

Before they changed them I just got an angled end for my grease gun. It is nice to grease em without getting under if u can grease em.
So today I pulled the right front tire and than let the axle back down. Only one of the three took grease. So I pressed the two out just enough to turn em and c clamped with sockets back in. They now take grease. Installed tire and pulled right rear off. Let axle fully down and all three took grease.
So now I know if I jack right side frame to let tires hang or pull tires and drop suspension I can get grease in.

Yup, go figure the factory service the experts.
Well after this summer I will have around 12k miles on these brakes. I plan on replacing them with non self adjusting, new drums, bearings and seals. When I do this I will pull all the wet bolts and inspect and install with zerks under the trailer and the correct way.
This way I know it will all be done right and I will not have to worry about self adjusting brakes running hot.

Some suggest when brakes run hot enough they can blow seals.There seem to be a lot of members complaining about seals!

When my backing plates were replaced, Jayco also replaced seals with double lip seals. (So they say) I do have to say that Crestview Jayco in Buda Texas has treated me fairly.
