you will need sockets and open end wrenches. assuming that they just unbolt that is all you will need.

Most people will find that they do not unbolt and that leaves you with a few options. If they are in bad shape you should be able to sheer the bolt appart. OR you can take a hack saw and cut them into pieces (or saws-all)

This thread is the most informative end link thread that I know of.

Basic tools is all you'll need. Ratchet, socket and wrench, jack and jack stands or ramps. Sometimes when I'm lazy, I'll simply cut the old ones off with an abrasive disk of some sort. Sometimes they will break as you are torquing the nuts over the years of built-up crud. This is a time saver in my book.

A saws all would probably work best for removing them; although I used a angle grinder with a cutt off wheel when I did mine.
