Default Front Top Mount replacement

Trying to work out the best way to remove the existing top mounts.

The only way I can see to do this is to use a large box spanner with a smaller one inside?

You can get sockets designed for the job, or use a cranked spanner and a Alan key.

I really needed the special socket to do the shocks back up.

Basically the socket is a deep one with a hole in the side and you poke an Alan key through the hole in the side.
