you're going to need some super long extensions to get to those top bolts, if they're seized on there then using a pipe as an extension on your rachet will loosen it quickly. be careful when lowering the tranny that you don't get injured.

I just tested the car and the clutch works good and everything is good. Anybody planning on changing the clutch with the car two feet of the ground better think again cause it was tough. Im happy now. Thanx to the guys that gave some useful hints
