A shallow socket wont fit on the driveshaft bolts? Ive had this trouble before on other vehicles. Theyre definitely tough to take off. What I would try is spraying a little pb blaster or lubricant on the bolts and let it sit for a little while. After u do that try to fit a shallow socket or just put a wrench on the bolts and tap the bolts with a hammer or chisel to loosen the bolts up a little. And if that don't work put some heat on the bolts and that should get them lose enough to use a wrench. Just DONT strip the bolts, otherwise ull be prying them out and replacing them. Goodluck
