Changing brake pads, need help getting them back on

Swapped the pads and all set to reinstall, but having trouble lining up the 7mm hex bolts and feel as if I have to force the caliper to get the top and bottom lined up. Anyone have any tips/tricks? Brakes are winning.

When you place the caliper back on it should line up. Check that you have the pads installed correctly and are seated properly. If they are not seated properly this would definitely not allow the caliper to be positioned properly and alignment of the holes for he guide pins to be off.
