Here is a picture of the rear shock and mounts. It looks like you need two cans of beer, long arms, a curved box wrench, and an arm that bends just behind the wrist. If you can put it on a lift that allows the wheel to hang, then remove the wheel to reach all the parts. I really should be an easy reach with the proper tools. A boxed end wrench with a 60 degree bend may reach the top nut. The hanging suspension may drop enough to make reaching it easier.
