extension with a swivel and a 13mm(i believe) you can snake that mess up between the crossmember and lower control arm. if your universal isnt tight anymore wrap some tape around it, wouldnt want your joint to be all floppy

I saw this one guy use an impact on the nut while prying up on the mount. It worked pretty good.

The nut is 15mm I'm hoping the bolt head it the same! Good idea about the tape.

Thanks guys,

If you want to take them out and put them back in do as everyone else said. If you only want to take them out use the torch
