He is right. You just need a normal wrench nothing fancy. You need patience and you just gotta work it in there. It's not really that hard.

Sent from my iPhone, probably because I am bored at work.

A 3/8 drive 9/16" deep socket worked for me. It's a pain, but doable. Driver's side is fairly easy. The exhaust pipe makes the Passenger side more difficult. Something else that I tried and was successful with (on the passenger side)...I used a couple of long 12" extensions to move the ratchet out towards the axle. It's still tight, but it fits, and you can hold/turn the ratchet. I have a ratchet with a pivoting head, which is nice, but probably not necessary.

After copious amounts of PB Blaster to loosen the ancient bolts, you will need to fiddle with the right size socket and/or box wrench to get on them. The easiest way I've found is to work from the outside - in. The outbound bolts interfere with getting to the inbound bolts, or at least it's easier to get to the inbound bolts with the outbounds out of the way.
