alright i am on the passenger side and i am ready to drop the shock, but cant seem to get at one of the 2 bolts that hold the shock into the shock houseing. it is covered by 2 metal brake fluid lines that run from the abs unit to the brake resevoir, is there any way to get at this? i dont want to bend/brake the lines. thanks

don't you mean the two A/C lines? iirc, the brake lines are on the driver's side. anyway, you can get a swivel socket in there or try to fit a box-end wrench in there and attach another wrench to it for leverage. its been a long time since i've done my CO's. are you using air/power tools or hand tools?

long skinny extension with a swivel end, IIRC i didn't even use a swivel end.
