That was never a fun job for me. I used 3 wobble extensions (sold in a package at ACE Hardware) and a swivel joint to remove the nuts. I remember each nut needed a slightly different order and combo of extensions to reach them from underneath. PB Blaster was a big help too. Spraying that a few hours, if not a night, before is a good idea.

yea i used mostly 6in wobble extensions with swivel joints and a swivel head ratchet, and a 7/8 o2 sensor tool. the bolts have been the easy part for me
