Doing some work, maybe more... need input.

This Saturday Morning I will be ripping my heads off and redoing my Gaskets..
I have done this once b4, 3 years ago.
Same cylinder, Passenger rear.. I drive my car like I stole it, so its no surprise that it popped again..
Now where I need advice is the Tranny...

Recently ( 3 months ago ) Started getting a leak, Front seal, How hard is this to work on without a lift...

I know I can get the car up about 16 to 18 inches off the ground, but thats about it.

I have 2 ramps and 8 stands and 2 3 ton jacks.

I figured if I bought the rear seal and front seal, that would do it, is there any other seals that are a must if I do this?

Any tricks with Tranny Removal?
Any tips on the install and removal of the torque converter?
Any ideas on what to expect? Surprises?

Stock V6 1996 Mustang.

Space isn't remote at all. It's only an hour's drive away if your car could go straight upwards.

The tranny removal is very possible withourt a lift, make sure to have plenty of socket extensions and swivels. And a tranny adapter for your jack can make the job much easier. It isn't very hard, but it sure is tiring without a lift.
