Bought this one to remove the sway bar link to the strut. Thin enough not to ding the boot.
More strut related tools coming.

Another good commonly available source for thin open-end wrenches is bicycle tools.

Yeah, they're called "Bearing Wrenches" or "Bearing Cone Wrenches."

As the name suggests, they are used to adjust the ball bearing cones in wheel hubs while tightening the lock nut against it. A set usually has two wrenches with two different sizes on each end, 14mm-18mm.

Any good bike shop will have them. "Park" is the best name brand.

I am eagerly awaiting the shock replacement write up. Replaing the shocks but keeping everything else stock is a goal of mine too.

actually a cheapo 5/8" China/Taiwan import open-end wrench is typically thin enough and fits properly for the job

I keep one around just for that purpose.
