i've know i have posted before about removing my motor..

well i got some questions i really dont have the money to pay to get it removed and i really cant wait a month to do it at school.

i really want to do it my self i've pull motor before... but never droped one

my issue is is how would i lift the body off of the subframe? jack the car up 3 feet some how and put it on jackstands... then use jacks to lower the motor down to the ground.... i am willing to do anything any help will be great

You're close....Disconnect and remove anything in the way in the engine compartment, then raise the whole thing as high as you can and pull the wheels/suspension, and go through the last steps to lower the engine/trans/cradle onto a wheeled dolly.
