Thanks for all the replies. I went to Sears and bought a angled 10mm/11mm boxwrench. This enabled me to get to the bolts easier. As for compressing the shocks, well that was real easy because these shocks were completely shot. I am gathering these are the original shocks, that would be 19 yrs old. Originally I was going to use a 10mm stubby wrench but with the bolts sitting like they do, I figured a 45 deg. angle wrench would do the trick, so that's why I bought that.
Now that I have corrected the frontend, now I am waiting on the aircells to fix the backend. Thanks again for the tips.
