    Tried everything, soaked them in PB, hit them with heat, impact, cheater bar. Only rounded one off so far and so on. Can't get them off at all. Considering cutting them off and starting fresh. Ideas?

    It would appear they L and R were covered up with many many layers of paint. Drivers side came off easy, passenger I rounded one and then took a break and tried the rest. Off! I had to torch the rounded one off... No other way to get it off :( Tried pounding on a socket, welding on a nut, pipe wrench, grinding on flat spots etc. No bueno... I'll replace all the studs with standard anyway, they were all a bit pitted.
