I know the feeling. This is a great reason to have a second set of hands. I've seen that "Sure man, I can prob get it loose." grin spreading on the face AFTER you hand over the hammer/wrench. Scary stuff.. just reign them in before all you have left is metal shavings.

Oh, meant to add a small testimonial: Getting to the bolts was the hardest part. Maybe the only hard part. The backend feels predictable afterward. Car feels great. Get those hub bushings while you're in there for the rear-end bushing clean sweep.

dummy tip: if you're replacing your lateral links with adjustables (ie: whiteline).. MEASURE the old ones center-center and set the adj links BEFORE you put them in. It was annoying crawling back under the car with calipers.
