    How do I get to the top bolts on the rear shocks? They are the original shocks so they have flat sides that face the ground and the nut is on top

    To add, after dropping the spare tire, unbolt the EVAP canister and move it for added clearance. Also wouldn't hurt to lightly coat the bolt threads with anti seize for future ease of removal.
