I loosened the mounts and jacked the engine by the a/c compressor. Space is very tight and the pan has to be wiggled/angled every few inches in just the right direction to get it free. I'd suggest the cherry picker/balance bar method.

Removing/installing the pan bolts is a giant pain even with the right extensions/u-joints. You are going to lose Your knuckles doing this and it wound up taking me more time than it would have to just pull the tranny or front crossmember.
