No lift! I had two Floor jacks and 6 heavy duty Jack Stands. Once I had the Rear assembly loose I held up the Transaxle with a Jack stand and lowered the rear Suspension to the ground. Slide it out of the way. Then had a hell of a time gettting the rear mounted ABS box out of the way and had to bend some brake lines to get it moved enough. Then with the frame on 4 stands, I used a floor jack with a tranny adaptor to hold the trans axle firmly and slowly lowed it till the rear end cleared the damn ABS unit. then I pulled the transaxle form the torque tube. again requiring more length to pull it back and had a 5 jack under the rear of the engine to keep it from tilting too much. Lowered the transaxle and voila!
Oh yeah, on the Suspense I had a frame adaptor that held the lower a arms securely.
Took it down and put it up all by my lonesome.
Some tricky moments if you get serious I will fill you in. But I would never, rebuild the trans myself. Too complicated and I have a two year auto tech degree. I have rebuild 3 and 4 speeds and GM Hydros, I bought the book to see how bad it is and it convnicned me to ship it out. I found a damn nice fella near Indy that charged $1,000 for rebuild with all new second gear parts, heavy duty forks etc. Or if money is no object Rockland has the best Reputation I have heard about. About $1,700 or more for them.
You can do it be very patient and triple check everything.
