Today I started trying to remove the exhaust ..I was able to get all 3 nuts on the passenger side exhaust manifold unbolted. But on the drivers side im having a hard time getting the 2 remaining nuts off. Im unable to get my impact with swivel and extentions to the nut on the driver side because the frame is sort of in the way..Im able to get an open end wrench thru the driver side wheel well but not enough force to break it loose. Anyone have any tricks for getting the nuts on the driver side off...

Looks like this one could hold the flywheel if you have the starter out?

I use one similar. You just need to move the starter out of the way so I leave the cables hooked up, remove the bolts and just slide it into a cranny on top of the frame.

The starter has already been removed already. Can this tool be purchased locally??

I'm unable to get my impact wrench up there

Trying to see how I can lock the motor to get the torque converter bolts off

I don't remember this being all that difficult. I didn't have to use any special tools. I may have manually put the transmission into park to lock it in place while undoing the bolts, but I don't think I even had to do that. I may have given the wrench a good sharp wack to break torque.

This video was useful for me:

This video was made after I did mine, and it shows removing the flywheel nuts at 10:50 min:
