X2! My dad has been a mechanic for basically his whole life. That's the way he has always done it, and that's the way I always do it.

You lift the back from the diff. Always been the way. There is no other way that will work unless you have a lift. If you don't want to do it for some unknown mystery reason, then I guess you'll have to go find a shop with a lift and let someone else do the work.
