I am trying to remove the VLSD out of my J30 parts car and all of the nuts and bolts are pretty rusted...anyone have any suggestions on how to remove everything to get the diff out? Thanks.

^ hence my stripped bolt remover set, LOL.
besides, you'd want to use new bolts anyways if they're that rusted to bust on you

edit: use 6 point sockets, not 12
