Well, I feel for you, it ain't goin' to be fun. I'm sure you've already used a lot of WD40, if they are really rusted or get stripped you may just have to get a pair of channel locks and a friend with some muscle to help you out.

Best of luck.

Have you tried a really big breaker bar? If you haven't stripped them all to hell yet, try a big breaker bar and really put some torque on them

If WD-40 doesn't work for you heat 'em up. After first wiping off the excess WD-40, as it is very flammable. A small propane torch should get them to a nice red glow, then take a socket wrench to them. Be careful where you aim the torch.
