13mm spanner/socket, WD40, and maybe a hammer, pry bar.

WD40 is excellent for slipping the rubber hangers off, otherwise its a struggle.

the rubbers will still be hard to remove., thats what there designed for., as said above, you'll need a 13mm for it, their usually heat seized just after the manifold connection to the down pipe incase your opening it there., not sure if you removing the whole thing or not but i think you still have to seperate the manifold to get it out.,

Would It Be Ok To Have It Supported On Two Axel Stands And Two Trolley Jacks

yeah. i would do it, anyway. as i said, plenty WD40 is really useful.

never jack a car up on all fours., one side/end only or you run the risk of moving the car and then faling on you., especially if its on trolly jacks.,
