1997 Camry LE I4
The start bump method is easy and reliable. I did this a few weeks ago. You only need a very quick turn on the starter. Make sure you take all the spark plugs out. I used a tow rope to tie the breaker bar to the lower control arm.Pretty afraid of the "start bump" method. ......Would love some suggestions on how people got this damn bolt off. It's pretty frustrating.
Honestly, its easy.
Also, these bolts self-tighten with engine use. As you have found they can get very tight.
