I did mine alone and I'm no weight lifter, by using a bunch of wood scraps and the floor jack, while the vehicle is up on ramps or jack stands. Not easy....

I used a piece of 2 foot 6x6 and a floor jack with my truck on the ground the last few times it has been off. Easier with help, but not impossible without.

I am ashamed to admit this, but I don't have a floor jack. The condo association here dose not like people working on their vehicles(its actually in the rules :rolleyes:), so I dont have the need for one. something like this is small, and I should be in and out fairly quick. I tried using the factory bottle jack, but that did not work out to well.

The floor jack works great to hold it in place. I have even done it using my knees to holds out in place, that took some work.

You need to cultivate more meatspace buddies, my on-line friend. :biggrin: Homeowners with garages full of tools would be the best target. :thumbsup: Especially if they were in a state of chronic beer shortage that you could solve. :wootwoot:
