i did it and my hands are not small. Its very tight up there. You can do it! Its been some time but i think I did remove some of that webing with a dremil. It seemed one side was harder too.

Tell you though, relaxe, get a few beers. have a few friends to help.

Ratcheting box end wrench, works every time. I have done a couple dozen JK lifts without taking anything apart on the front to get to the shocks.
