i have a dewalt 18V impact wrench to speed things up.

i can finish a swap in 20 minutes with that, if i use two jacks to lift one side at a time (you can actually use 1 at the rear jack point, but i cannot recommend doing this)
i put a quick swipe of antiseize on the centerbore of the wheel, nowhere else, never had an issue getting the wheels off.
finish off the job by torquing the lugs to 88 ft/lbs, then retorquing a few hundred miles later. my personal favorite torque wrench is a split beam one.
