Spray the old ones with PB Blaster before you try to break them free and use anti-sieze compound on the new ones.
If his are anything like mine, simply replacing the bolts is likely not an option

The bolts connecting my y-pipe to my mufflers are literally just little black bumps now, and the two "once separate" flanges are now one. If I ever separate them I'm 90% sure that the y-pipe will need to be replaced in order for my to have flanges to bolt new mufflers to.

No problem though, I have a new y-pipe in the garage--just need to decide on axlebacks or pick up a fresh set of OEM mufflers.
