do a search...popping the ball joint is the easiest damn thing you'll do removing the axle...

Whenever I pull a motor, I NEVER remove the axles completly. I will pop the lower BJ and pop the axle out of the tranny and pul it out enough to get the axle underneath the tranny so when I yank the motor/tranny up, the axles doesn't come with it. Been doing this on 10+ motor pulls with NO problems. Do not need to even unbolt the strut from the lower control arm.
