1 jack up the car
2 remove exhaust
3 remove heat shields
4 remove drive shaft
5 remove guibo bolts [you will need someone to put tranny in gear and take it out for each bolt so you can reach it]
6 install new one
7 put everything back

So you only dropped the exhaust and didn't remove any other components? I'm actually change out the output shaft seal along with the guibo and I've been holding it off because the amount of time it would take to remove the exhaust, heat shield, etc.

Bah, I knew I was close. My friend and I had just started the second day of working on my clutch at about 6am and we realized we didn't have the wrench to take the driveshaft off. We ended up having to wait for the hardware store to open to pick one up.
