lights installed in ceiling before or after drywall?

Now there is no way I would bother with the cans.  The spring loaded clip in LED lights are more low profile and so much more convenient.


I'd run all the wire and leave enough to work with at each light location. Cut the holes and reach in and grab the wire. Then put in the pucks with spring loaded mounting.
