Trouble w/ inside lower bolt on front shock

I can see it, it's right there, but for the life of me I can't get a socket on the lower inside bolt on the front shock of my 1980 300SD. The angle of the shock prohibits it. I've tried turning the wheel all the way to both sides, jacking it up/down, and various types of wrenches and swivels and wobblies. Is there a special MB tool for this or what....The outside bolt of the pair came off with out a hitch.
