It may not be the info you're looking for, but I use the car'* jack to raise the right side about 4-5 inches to allow enough room to get under to the filter with a jointed filter strap wrench to turn it loose. It'* a little tight without the lift anymore. I don't lift enough that the fall would be dangerous if the jack split while I was under the car.
