2007 4x4 header install issue

Good evening folks. Please don't flame me for this as this is my first post. I recently bought an 07 LE CC 4x4 and both manifolds are cracked. I bought some headers and set out to knock it out today. I managed to get the passenger side swapped out by taking the studs out because I can't get the 4 bolts for the MM out. What's the trick? I lifted up on the motor at various pressures and tried to break them with an impact with no joy. I also couldn't get to the two front ones on each side because how the heck! I thought they were only torqued to 65ft/lb. I have searched and searched but every post I found, the photobucket link for pictures was broken. So please..... can anyone give me the guidance I need? Thank you all!

Does someone have a picture of exactly where I need to put my jack to relieve pressure from the motor mounts. I think I might be on the wrong spot.
I just can't break the dang motor mount bolts free. I've tried light pressure to noticibly lifting the motor and they won't budge.
I pulled the manifold studs out instead of doing the motor mount and lifting the engine. It wasn't bad at all.

That's what I'm doing now. I have one stud that I rounded the spline off and have to vice grip it out. I will be replacing that. But, since I work nights and will be working Saturday-Monday, I'll have to start back up on Tuesday.
This may seem like a dumb question, but did you try using hand tools?
I don't feel that is a dumb question but yes. I'm having to use multiple extensions to reach then MM bolts. Pulling the studs is not what I wanted to do but oh well.
