I got the bottoms removed and that was no fun with simple hand tools, I definately do not have the energy right now to remove the 7 back screws...There must be an easier way :(

Air tools....those bolts need to be removed one way or another.

Electric impacts should work as well. I like my dewalt 18v 1/2 drive impact. It puts out 300 ft/lb of torque. It took my rusted suspension apart with ease when I lowered my WK1. Also the smaller 18v impacts put out ~100ft/lb of torque. That should do the job.

Exactly...electric or air impact gun should do the trick. I took those bolts off by hand once....never again. LOL

I have a 3 gallon craftsman compressor that blew up my wheelbarrow tires...That would be perfect for those bastard screws :thinkerg:...I will just have to find the right air tool set and fittings to break off those suckers ;)!
