I have a 2014 Tradesman 4x4 with an 8" lift the dealer installed. The shocks were updated and I changed them out as well. I get a "click" in the rear of the truck when the body rolls. I suspect that I didn't get the top shock bolt tightened sufficiently, may have backed off. When I installed them, I actually tore a tendon in my hand and had to have surgery. Guess I did it wrong! My question is, is there an easy way to access the top shock mount bolt? It is located in the frame rail, pain in the butt to get to. There is a bolt on the outside of the frame rail that appears to be there to align the mount? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Not real easy that I know of. I used a 6 point articulating ratcheting wrench. You have to use an allen for the shaft. Got underneath the truck and over the frame rail.

Take off the wheel and take out the wheelwell liner. Makes it much easier to get to
