I probably should have specified in that post when I mentioned one needs to be dropped or removed I ment you either need to
1: drop/lower the differential carrier assembly from the car and let it hang on the axles.
2: remove the gas tank, hoses, lines, straps, deal with that heavy awkward beast, I wouldn't drop a tank again unless I was changing the fuel pump at the same time.
Ex: My fuel pump burned out so I replaced it with a walbro 255 and upgraded/changed my driveshaft and u-joints at the same time.
Seriously depending on the mileage it's a toss up, I'd only drop the tank if you are changing the pump.
