Installing new control arms...

Hey all,

I am currently installing new control arms in my 325i and am having serious issues with the 21mm inner bolt and the furthest bolt on the bushing. I believe I have a reinforcement plate under my car that is making it almost impossible to remove the last bolt near the bushing. The only thing I can barely fit there is a hand wrench but its rusted on really tight. Do I need to remove the reinforcement plate to get at this properly? Is there a DIY for removing this plate?

Also there is almost no clearance for the 21mm inner bolt. Is there any easy way to add more clearance so that I can fit something bigger than a small wrench in there. This bolt is also rusted on tight.
