I did mine a couple weeks ago and I did what pretty much everyone does from what I've read about doing this. I hit em with some PB blaster a couple times about a week or so in advance then with the motor warm I broke both nuts loose with a 12mm wrench. Guess I was one of the lucky ones and it didn't take long at all.

Yes^^^ Spray them hoes a couple days in a row before and them grab an extra pair of nuts and break em loose. No room to work in the LMM's either so have fun!

Ya, bp blaster is your best friend. Just spray a lot on the nut, drink a beer. Repeat process for about 3 beers. Worked for me! And as stated earlier, getting nuts off is the easy part. Make sure you have a long pry bar and a friend handy!

I keep passing on this tip that has helped me and others. Put a ratchet strap on your wrench/ ratchet and pull from the drivers side after a few days of lubein the bolts. I slid a small ID hose over the nozzle to get back there. I can ship you a ratchet that will work awesome to for a deposit.
