Problems with my Body Lift

Hey, I'm in the process of putting a body lift in my 02. It's a 4x4, and theres a clip on the back of the a/c compressor that has to come off, but I can't reach it/find it. And the Rear bumper I can't fit the wrench on the socket to get them off, any help would be great.

I'm running a 4.0 SOHC. But luckily, I just found my air ratchet, my impact wrench was too bulky, so hopefully it'll go smoother tomorrow morning.

You can reach the AC compressor through the front driver wheelwell. Mine was a pain as well.

Finally got my lift all in and done. Had a few pieces I didn't need. I'll get some pictures up whenever I get a chance and figure out how to do it. And another thing, When I was unhooking the thing for my transfer case, the clip that latches over the to two wires together broke, so I just taped it together for the time being. But now, my 4wd won't engage, any ideas?
