Just wondering which rear shock spanner wrench is the best to get. Looking at my 08 ZX-10 and there really isn't too much maneuvering room. Any suggestions to preferred wrenches would be great.

On mine I had to use a hammer and punch to take off some preload before I could even get the wrench on there. The swingarm was in the way, it came up too high and I could not get the wrench to grab it.

yeah same method for me just used a hammer and and flat head screwdriver.. works good and you dont get any busted hands trying to reach in there and turn that damn thing and then have it slip off ...
Yep. I bought two different spanner wrenches (one a full-on hinging wrench, the other slides onto a ratchet) and both dont fit very well. They work (barely) for loosening the preload, but if you are stiffening it, it's much easier to just use a screwdriver and a hammer.
I busted my knuckles up trying to use the stupid spanner wrenches.

This is on an '05 btw.
