The axleshafts are fixed length, but the DeDion tube is not. Once the
axles are unbolted, the entire rear susp on either side can be moved far
enough to drop the halfshaft. Be careful about your jackstands, as the
trailing arm/hub etc has to move sideways a bit If the stands are under
the suspension, the car will have poor lateral location on the stands
once the halfshafts are unbolted, so it is recommended to have stands
under the base unit.
Or use the book method, which is to put rod in to the jacking points, 7/8" I think, and jack stands under them. Works fine.
