Thanks for the ideas. I fought with it some more and got all the bolts out, but it looks like I either have to disassemble some more or bust out the Sawzall to actually get it out. I'll do that tomorrow.
Thanks! My OCD must be similar to yours. I have the 6 cyl, but for some reason, only one hanger is there. I do see the holes for the second hanger, so I will go ahead and order it.I've got the 4-cyl but thought I'd chime in on muffler question. I bought a Magnaflow cat-back for mine and the muffler had two hanger hooks. I looked in the service manual and thought it showed two hangers for the 6-cyl; just one for the 4. I figured they just used the same muffler for both. Anyway, my OCD wouldn't let me have a hanger hook just sitting there w/o being hooked to anything, so I paid $10-$15 for another hanger and bolts and, sure enough, there were a couple of threaded holes in the frame right where they needed to be. There was definitely less "wiggle" in the system with the second hanger connected. Anyway, just FWIW.
PS I got the parts from my local dealer.
