DIY Rear Shock Replacement on class C

I'm replacing the shocks on my Chateau 31E with some Bilstein HD shocks. I have completed the fronts (which were a pain because it's nearly impossible to get a tool on the upper shock mount nuts), and now I need to do the rear. I was wondering if anyone had any tips.

On the right rear, the upper mounting nut is not accessible because there are exhaust brackets and heat shields in the way. It looks as if the approach would be to remove the exhaust hanger brackets and drop the exhaust down, and then maneuver a tool over the heat shield to get to the nut. Has anyone done this and has any recommendations?
