    If memory serves me correctly bank 2 is passenger side.

    edit- I actually had to go out to my truck to remind me which was which. Bank 2 is passenger side, Bank 1 is driver's side.

    Jason- It was a PITA to get one of mine out. There's an offset wrench/socket head you can get that might make it a little easier. I had bought one and gave it a whirl. It didn't work for me. Went to the shop I use often and he was able to have it cracked loose within a minute while it was up on the lift.

    To make things simpler, and you probably know, make sure the exhaust is somewhat hot. The metal expands and might make it a little easier to get it out.

    Good luck,

    Use a torch and get the fitting as hot as you can. Spray some PB or whatever you like around the threads of the fitting. The PB will shock cool the threads which helps break the corrosion. Plus the PB will wick down in the threads. You may want to do this several times over a half hour or so. A MAPP gas torch is OK if you don't have Oxy-Acetylene
