Rear Brake Help!

Ok,
So I am doing the rear brakes on the 09 Rubicon. It was hell trying to get the rotors off and after eventually being successful I realized that I manage to knock the brake shoe retaining pins loose and I am having a hell of a time getting them back on.

They are a round pin with a slide on squeeze type clip that holds the shoes to the rear bracket. Any tricks anyone can think of?

Link for reference and they are #7 in the picture.

They aren’t normally a big deal so make sure the shoe is seated against the backing plate where it should be and hold the pin from the back keeping it against the backing plate. You should have enough space to compress that clip fully against the shoe and then slide it onto the pin.

After buying some tiny pry bars and a pair of bent needle nose pliers I finally got it! Problem was I sort of warped the hole they were seated in when I was pulling at the rotor to get it off which caused two of the pins to pull through. so I was trying to add a small washer in for now to hold to prevent i from happening again. I guess those few milimeters was making it that much harder to get the clip on.

Before anyone asks I already ordered a whole new e brake kit and will be changing everything out at the next brake service. I am not sure anything was ever done on these other than pads. Those rotors were a damn nightmare. Never in my life have I had to work that hard on brakes. Then again this is my first jeep.

On a side note. I really need to clean my garage out!
