[s-cars] CV Boot Fix Snag

So, yesterday, I jack the car up and prepare for the CV boot
replacement. Hmmm, car not high enough to get to inner flange area.
Jack up higher (using jack stands), but I am still almost
nose-to-exhaust in flange area. Don't feel comfortable jacking higher
and/or using any kind of force while car perched up that high. Lower
car and retighten axel bolt.
There is also a shield partially blocking access to inner flange bolts
on the right side. I will need to rotate the axel as I go to get
access to bolt heads. Will this do any harm to the bearing (kind of a
late question as I already rotated the hub with the bolt out)?
I am now trying to gain access to a lift. Any suggestions on how to
do this job on the floor if need be?
