its J clips they *should not* spin at all. personally I would put someone below with some eye protection and a Mapp gas torch you can pick those up at the auto store comes with the bottle and torch head.
if you have access to an impact gun use it. get the bolts/jclips really nice and hot and impact them out shouldnt be a problem the back drive one by the tank just be careful with the torch being the tank is plastic
when you go and reinstall the bolts never seize the threads so if you ever have to say do a fuel pump pulling the bed off again is easy
