Well David,
Welcome to the club of DIYers.
Now you are hooked and will have to buy every tool you see 'til you die !!!!

Anyway, there is an easy fix if the shock is rattling back and forth on the top bushing pin. [ which is common].
You can take the one lone mounting bolt that goes through the
the shock top eyelet and sandwich an "O" ring between the
shock eye and the washer. That takes up the side play [which
is the Rattle] dimension of the shock. The bushing itself
is still good. it is just sloppy on the side and this shimming works fine and last long. [And gets rid of the Rattle !! }
Of course, the best way is replace the shock, but the bottom mount is difficult.

Good work...
