If you don't have access to a lift, you're gonna suffer...
Good luck though.

I haven't decided on doing that one on my own or not yet.
Major repairs would require a large shop.
One with a floor lift.
Thats when they put them on a lift to do the work.
No need to jack the pumpkin with a floor jack when
there is a perfectly good floor lift to do it for you.
Maybe I could go into the "DONT JACK MY PUMPKIN"
stickers busisness for S197 owners differential covers.
And I would think that the stealership knows better
than to jack her up by the pumpkin?
I change and rotate my own tires, and I dont let the
tire shop monkeys with their 250Ft Lb impact guns
anywhere near my stang. I retorque my lugnuts in
stages, thank you. I now also change my own oil since
the big oil fiasco of 07 when the stealership put the
wrong weight of oil in my stang and said they changed
the filter when it was obvious that they didnt.
(sign your oil filters if you are having someone else
change your oil/filter)
But I guess those who dont have the means or knowledge
to repair the ol stang, they will just have to show
whomever is working on the stang the proper jacking
points.

I change my oil with the vehicle at ride height so
the oil will completely drain unlike when the vehicle
is nose up on jackstands and some remains in the pan.

As soon as you lock the thread

I think the non pumpkin jackers are actually bent out of shape...

157db are you a midget? Seriously. How the hell do you change the oil without getting the front end up a bit?

+1, and the plug is at the rear of the pan so it actually allows a better drain of the pan by jacking the front a little.

157db I don't believe it. I think you have monster truck tires on your mustang.
