Takes time. Be patient. You can take tire off and get to them thru there. Passenger side is a pita.

headers

Which two corners?
The passenger Side is a *****, I've done the BBK shorties so tell me what your problem is and I'll walk you through it as best I can.
The top front, I bought a 15 mm wrench and bent it in a vice to work.
Didn't have to bend it much but you can only get maybe a 6th of a turn on it.
Bottom front I used a 3/8 matco flex ratchet with a 15 mm deep well.
I got horror stories you can't dream of on the pass side!

I used several swivel sockets and dome small wrenches on that side. Can not get much of a turn on them but eventually they will come out.

Much the same for me.
The one behind the heater hose was tough, that nut I bought a 15 mm wrench and bent it enough to be able to get around interference with the valve cover.
