In Reply to: Removing Exhaust & Replacing Driveshaft Bearing posted by Glen Klym on November 04, 1999 at 10:57:39:

: I have done it a few times too many. Be very carefull not to twist off the exhaust manifold studs, they are very easy to do this to and a big job to drill out. Otherwise i used a floor jack with all four corners of the car as high as I could get it. I positioned the jack as close to the center of gravity of the exhaust system and held it up as i removed all attachments and the bolts to the manifold. Reverse to install. Be carefull to match the drivshaft in the same way it came off the trans and diff. These are a boger to get balanced.

ymmv good luck
