I hope this can be of some help? First off you don’t have to place the vehicle on jack stands. You can park it on ramp’s, however I personally feel a little more safe if the vehicle is being supported by stands.
Once you remove the studs on the differential and remove the bolts on the cross support everything should be loss allowing you to lower the diff and the differential stabilizer. If you have any questions feel free to give me a call.
