it looks like a shock absorber wrench. it holds the shaft stationary while you either tighten or loosen the nut and washer that hold it down.

i have the sockets that look like this. looks to perform the same function a little differently.

what part of the shock needs a wrench?

Is it pronounced "wrench" or "ranch" ? When I was a kid, they would say hey kid fetch that 9/16s "ranch" over here. I grew up never knowing? So sad.

it looks to stay stationary. just two different sizes at different angles.

it fits on the end of the oval shaped end of the shock absorber on the bottom.
