Balance Shaft eliminator q's

Ok So the front balance shaft has two bearings I need to remove, to do the eliminator kit. Can I get those two bearings out and in without pulling the whole motor out of the car? What have you guys done?

you can get them out if you undo the motor mounts to allow the motor(timing end) to hang at enough of an angle. it has been done.
Even on the angle, I couldn't get the balance shaft out. I had to cut it in half with a hacksaw.
i was able to pull out the balance shaft in my 94 ES by unbolting the bottom motor mount and letting the engine down with a floor jack...
