umm if you use a impact gun you will get the nut off the top of the shock. Umm if it doesn't move or it just spins you can grab a flat screwdriver and wedge it under the top metal bushing. That should give it enough bite to make the nut come off.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

Shock Absorber Socket it holds the rectangle top part of the shock so the shaft doesnt move while you spin the nut

that's awesome, i've never heard of something like that. if i'm replacing my shocks i just use some vice grips somewhere on the shaft because i'm getting rid of them anyway, but putting the new ones on sucks. definitely picking some up next time i swap shocks.

You forgot spring compressors. You can rent them at the auto parts store for free.
