Thanks guys. I am studying up on how to disconnect the trans to driveshaft connection and will start soaking the exhaust nuts (my bad handling of rusty nuts is what got me into this trouble) ....

So, drop exhaust, disconnect driveshaft at the Flex Plate and the rear of the trans should drop down some more (with a trolley jack for support of course)?

** Just took a good look at the exhaust studs/nuts. Corroded to nothing. Joints are compromised. Will have to cut em off, drill em out and replace with bolts/nuts. **
