Long extension bar. I've got one that 20" long that I got from Sears (and it didn't break). Don't know what the torque is on those bolts, but, I would suggest either a swivel head ratchet, or "wobbler" sockets. All can be bought at Sears. HTH. BTW, might be easier to pull the T-case so you have some room to work.
