Default Problem Changing Jimny Kingpin Bearings?

I have bought the bits (4 bearings & 2 seals) and studied a couple of HOW TOs on the forums.
The only thing left I can think of that might give me a problem is access to the 4 bolts holding the bearing hub to the steering knuckle.
My 2004 Jimny has both the vacuum operated hubs and ABS rotors & sensors.

I was hoping to avoid dismantling the bearing hub as that would require buying the pin tool to undo the circular bearing retaining nut (160 ft-lbf torque) as is indicated in the Suzuki Jimny workshop manual.

Using a flat style ring spanner will I be able to get at the 4 bolts behind the ABS rotor without having to dismantling / removing the bearing hub parts first?

thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
