Good half-inch sockets (impact even), and a good breaker bar.

your bolts are prolly gonna snap when by the time you get these calipers off. So i suggest you have a back up plan to be able to get around to get some parts you are prolly gonna need.

I had the exact same issue on my old EL. Impact Sicket and breaker bar was the solution, brok 2 bolts and the slider was jammed solid.

aaand when you take the rotor off, release the handbrake before you get mad and break something...
