What is e best way to remove the stock catalytic.

The bolts at the top seem to be difficult to get to.
A 20" 1/2" extension and a 15mm socket? with a socket swivel?

Please let me know if there are any tricks I can do to make removal easier.
I am installing Solo High Flow cats.

Thanks

I've done that job. Some from below and some from above with an extension. I may have used a swivel but I can't remember specifically.

Putting them back on is ever more fun!
Put a jack of some kind under to support the weight.

OK 1/2" chrome swivel with electrical tape on it to keep from bending a lot I assume and a 15mm impact socket.
An extension with a breaker bar.

Going to be worth the effort regardless.
Wait till you see the ID of the stock cats....
