Convert DAC+ HW 2.6 from RCA to phone jack


I have a DAC+ Standard RCA (HW 2.6) and want to convert it into a "phone jack" version. 

Can I just de-solder the RCA terminals and add a phone jack? Do I have to add the jack from below the board or from the top if I want to keep the channels correct?

Any other things to consider? I found an older post where someone wanted to add the jack to HW 2.3 and the response was that you had to bridge to pads and connect a ground wire.
The to pads in question (55 and 56) seem to be already populated on HW 2.6. Not sure about the ground.
