We first made sure that the Nova was supported well on the ground. Up front, we left the front suspension intact and sitting on its wheels ... temporarily. Out back, we removed the rear suspension, which was only being held by the front and rear of the mono-leaf suspension, and kept everything in place by two jackstands. This stopped the car from possibly rolling around on us, eliminated the rear end from getting in the way, and allowed us to pick the car up so we could work at eye level on a small stool.
