It's ok to keep the reducer at the end or even an universal joint.
The issue is always too much twist in the smaller extensions.

I also couldn't get it out with a 200 lb ft impact. returned the impact and bought a 350 lb ft milaukee and it did a little better. still returned it because i wanted to pick up a 800 lbft ingersol. lol
What worked even better is a breaker bar with a 4 foot extension. I used the metal bar used on my hydraulic jack and inserted it into my breaker bar. It came off quite easily.

if there is a harbor freight store near, an you can, go grab a jack that'll reach the sub-frame.. I figure if your going to do the work, get the tools.. cause you'll use them over and over...
remove the middle two bolts completely, seriously, no worries.. the 4 corner bolts are long enough to be lowered the 3 inch drop they claim easy... and measure, don't be " about "
