Whatta PITA this was!!!!!
a 6mm socket, a nut driver and a swivel head helps tremendously with the lower boot clamps...
mine were positioned in the worst possible place too...
I seriously think a 6mm gearwrench would be helpful too...
I am 6', 200lbs with big hands and I found that moving the cabin fresh air intake and the little rubber heat shield mentioned above helped alot...
working around the strut bar was a pita but all in all it is done,
mine too was ripped in the accordian section of the little hose...

Don't be cheap, replace both lower and upper while your there,
chances are they are the same age anyway...
I also treated my rubber hood seals while I was there too...

Glad that is over...
Next!!!!
