Trunk torsion bars

Guys it's been along time since these torsion bar Springs have been installed I think I marked them correctly but I can't recall. Do I have them installed correctly at the hinges? When I do that they are both pointing up and somewhat rearward. In order to get them where I think they need to go ( red picture borrowed from the BB) I would need to grab and twist the hell out of them. Is this the right way to install these?

Okay... it is really some serious grabbing and twisting then? Hooking the outer edges in place first is the right sequence?

Answer: yes! Feels like a lot of twisting but they go on. Careful of the fingers.
