I used wd-40 still nothing. Im using a regular wrench I picked up at auto zone. I also tried socket wrench as well. I guess Ill be picking up a breaker bar tommarow and giving that a shot.

Yep, you definitely need a breaker bar. That extra leverage will help. I used a 24" Kobalt 1/2" drive to loosen the bolts... even with that it was pretty tough.

Also you can hit the bolts with a hammer. Sometimes the vibration gets the bolts to "unstuck"

I wouldn't hit the bolt directly, but you can hit the ratchet or wrench to get a little bit of an impact gun action. I have to do that to break the caliper bolts loose because I can't really get that much leverage inside the wheel wells. Just don't whack it too hard!

But the breaker bar is going to be your best bet.

Why wouldn't you hit the bolt directly?

A rubber mallet is pretty good as well, but there is really no problem just giving the bolts some good taps...

But agreed on the breaker bar!

The hammer rules! (especially with rust, as a breaker bar could actually just break the bolt)

But with the bolt being fairly new, a breaker bar is a good call

Just drill a few holes in the muffler to achieve more noise. Also, you can drill a big hole then put a valve on it to adjust volume LOL.
