How to install recessed lights onto suspended ceilings

I have already installed my recessed lights onto the ceiling joints and have now completed the installation of the suspended ceiling. Since my suspended ceiling is 6" below the ceiling joists I have to bring the recessed lights down so that they can protrude through the suspended ceiling panels. Could you help me in how this is done?

The spreader bars that you attached to the joist need to be attached to the ceiling grid. You should see some slots that fit over the tees.
