Question rear upper strut mount

My left rear upper strut mount let go over the weekend. Its not happy about it either judging by noises it is making.. LOL Is this a job that can be done with hand tools? I need to remove the entire strut assembly to do this right? Anyone know what sizes wrenhes I will need for the lower bolts?

Thanks

Easy job with hand tools and floor jack. You will need to drop the shock to replace the mount.
