I got the pulsatin' rhythmical remedy

At this point the differential is out of the car, obviously, and the entire driver's side rear suspension assembly (upper and lower control arms, caliper and rotor, hub, and half-shaft) is completely clear of the subframe. It's supported by a jack at the moment, otherwise the whole assembly would be hanging by the brake lines.

And my jack is supporting the Power Plant Frame which sagged a surprising amount once it was clear of the differential.

I'm trying not to disconnect the brakes through this process if I can help it because I don't want to have to clamp them off and then bleed the brakes again during reassembly.

I'm surprised at how easy it was to get the suspension off. Okay, that's a bit of an exaggeration - it was easy using Miah's breaker bar and the impact wrench. The spring and shock assembly I took out separately from the rest of it so I can scrub it clean and find out which springs I have. I'd like to know what my spring rates are so I have a baseline to know where I'm starting when I get a coilover setup.

I need a couple cinder blocks or short sawhorses or some other adjustable thing to support the suspension assemblies. I'm running short on jacks.
