Why couldn’t you just leave the rear wheels on the ground and leave it in gear? That’s how I plan on doing mine.

Some of us work on lifts.
I wasn't going to lay on my back to loosen and torque a crank bolt.

A large pry bar, and an assistant to hang on to it.

Exactly! Leave it in 1st gear, chock the wheels and parking brake on and the crank is not moving.

The leverage you get lying on your back vs standing is unbelievably different. Watch speedys video of him loosening and tightening a crank bolt. I honestly had to laugh when I did mine with an extension pipe and took zero effort. Not to mention, that tool is a much better option than jamming something in the teeth like a prybar or piece of wood. #bustedknuckles

Manuals are easy, auto’s are the pain for this. Put it in 3rd gear and put E brake to the floor, it won’t move unless your E brakes not adjusted right.

Big ass screw driver works but I bought a flywheel locking tool from Amazon for my E39 M5 when I replaced the clutch & flywheel. When you’re on your back under stands, the lock tool makes things so much easier. I know it’s not a hellcat but the concept is the same.

Mine moved that is why I went to the good old pry bar method. I also used the the old style factory bolt as opposed to the new style Demon bolt.
