Unhappy Need help removing shocks from a W123

I am trying to replace the front shocks on my TD. Now, I have done this on my SD, but the spacing is different on this car. I am having trouble getting to the inside 10mm bolt, the one nearest to the spring. It seems the angle of the shock is getting in the way of putting the socket straight on. I do remember on my W116 I had to use a box end for this bolt, but with this car I can't seem to get even that over the bolt. Any tips would greatly be appreciated.
