     Is that the one they show in the pictures in the Bentley manual that is
supposed to be used to unscrew the cap that hold the shock in the strut of a
5K?  If it is, you don't need one.  You can reach through the spring (from the
side of the car) with a LARGE set of channel locks and unscrew the cap.
Assembly is the reverse.  Assembly can also be a PITA due to the fine
threading of the cap.  BTW, you should have gotten new caps with the shocks.
     Once you get used to it, changing shocks on a 5K is a simply, quick
     (I read the book too, and was convinced that the tool was needed to
change shocks.  Quattro Garage in Chanhassen showed me otherwise.)
