2004 Buick Rendezvous Question: How do I slide the engine forward to access spark plugs/wires behind engine?

Was told, in order to change the spark plugs/wires, that two bolts have to be removed in order to slide engine forward, to access the back ones. Is my engine going to fall, without something to hold it up during this process?

    The torque mounts on top; Remove bolts to engine side and rock the engine forward, then install a bolt in the hanger to hold it forward while accessing rear plugs.

    Even if you can rotate the engine a little and it is 'just a little',, it is not really a diy project! Strongly suggest having this done by a pro.....I think you may save money that way,,IMO...
