Driver's side shock tower bolt

Is there a way to get this bolt off without dis-assembling the brake booster assembly? Tried everything we could think of but nothing fits.

deepwell socket, extension and a wobble works very well. Or you could buy the JKS upper shock conversion and never deal with that PITA shock post again

not sure of the size...but it doesn't require removing stuff to get to...it is hard to get at...but can be done. If you have help...try having a friend get a wrench and hold the nut while you turn the shock...I have done it like that myself.

If you move the resovoir for the washer fluid it will help greatly.

eh we got it right after I posted this anyhow. We got shut down by the cops though. Air ratchet at 1:30 am, complaint call. I dont think it was really that loud.

edit: I don't know why I even posted this thread. Gave up too easy. Damn though, we got both the pucks on and the axle disconnected from trackbar and control arms sittin on stands waiting to put the coils back in. Used the air ratchet to take the control arm bolts out and a cop showed up just as we were getting the second control arm bolt out. Damn neighbors!!
