Extensions help get to the top bolt, I had to remove it all when changing my clutch. Maybe someone else has better input but extensions are your friend.

I've had luck with doing a deep socket and a 3" extension and about 30"of extensions and a wobbly socket. If you do the wobbly then make sure to wrap it in some ductape so that it doesn't just flop around.

+1 I used two swivels with a 14" extension and a 16" and a swivel on that end. Was exciting. Huge head ache.

Thanks we got it took 3 people 5 hours just to drop the transmission we had everything done expect that one bolt on the exhaust manifold got the starter off slowly but got it off then was able to get to the bolt on the manifold and got the transmission out and yes it was a BIG headache but we are going to wait next weekend in to put the new transmission and put in my new exhaust I bought from American muscle it going slow but can't wait to get my mustang back on the road
