Hey Danny, I would think you should be able to do it without a lift. You would need a floor jack to get the trans into position, but we've taken out/re-installed transmissions in my Subaru's plenty of times in the driveway. The biggest thing I would worry about would be having all the parts and tools you will need. We're actually doing my full drivetrain swap in my driveway right now, lol. Before you do anything I'd talk to Will (WJM), he may be willing to come down and do it somewhere local, or if nothing else you could take it up to the dealership where he works. Good luck with the swap.
