A few notes:
You always need u-joints. Sometimes Two.
Long Extensions, and working thru holes in the fenderwell are techniques to consider.
A socket, 1/2" ujoint and two 2' long 1/2" extensions lets you hit the top two bolts on a 4r70w with an impact wrench, lol.
Those are otherwise easier with a wrench.
Some jobs can only be done with one hand; there are right hand jobs and left hand jobs.
If something is crazy tough, switch positions and hands, and see if it helps.
Yes, this sounds bad.
The oil filter is a right hand job, as an example. On my Contour, it's a left hand job. (You think our filter is stupid, look at one of these, lol)
I have found on certain jobs, a Wrench worked better than a socket. O2 sensors, for one.
