Default Front shock upper bolts

The big ones that hold the springs in. 1-3/8 in.
Is there a "special" wrench for this?
Channel locks would scar the surface. Also not enough space there.

2007 883.

Move the bars out of the way and use a 6 point socket.

I hope yours was not rusted inside. One on my 95 was and could not be fixed. It was tough finding another one.

Thanks to Tractor Supply! The six point, 1-3/8 inch, socket is sold there only in expensive Impact quality.

Clerk gave me half off on it! All's well again.
