A boxed end wrench should do the trick. Getting an impact on there might be tricky because of the universal joint being right there. If you need more leverage, slip a pipe over the end of the wrench.

+1 on the box end wrench, believe it's a 12 point. Can't really get an impact on there without using a swivel socket and for something that's got thread sealant on it I wouldn't use a swivel socket.

I don't know about a box wrench. My DS bolts have 12-point heads - think they are 12mm. I'd say an impact wrench would be easiest if you can fit it in there.

Otherwise a socket with long breaker bar - problem is, unless you have a lift or can get the car jacked really high, you won't have much room to put some leverage on the breaker bar.

Idk how you guys were able to get them off with just a socket lol my friend's impact wouldn't even take mine off. I'll be attempting with an air gun this weekend hopefully

1/2" drive 12 point 12mm socket 3" extension and 1/2 drive rachet. No wonder you rounded them off with a impact. Its hard to get on them straight with rachet. I can't imagine trying it with an impact.

They make 12 point box end wrenches, that with a 3 foot pipe slipped over the wrench and it comes loose. Of course this is with the car up on a lift.

+1. I got mine off with a big ass breaker bar, 12 pt socket and a good bit of clearance.

You guys need to drink some milk and do some pushups or something. All I needed was a wrench, as I recall. :)
