Lots of extensions and a universal. For the top two I like to break them free with a six point box wrench and a cheater pipe. Doing the rest from underneath is a time saver. At least there's enough room for that on my 86. I also undo the three down pipe nuts and remove the exhaust pipe hanger from the bell and then open up the pinch bolt to slide it further down the pipe and out of the way.
