CLUTCH FINALLY WENT, SHOULD I DROP THE TRANNY OR LIFT THE ENGINE

2003 Mitsubishi Lancer • 175,000 miles

I need to change the clutch in my 2003 OZ Rally. I do not have a lift and will be working with jack stands. The clutch pedal drops to the floor and fluid is leaking from the tranny. Should I rent an engine lift and pull the engine or would it be easier to lift the car as high as possible and drop the transmission?

I would say it would be easier to raise the car as high as possible and go from the bottom. Just make sure you support the engine with a engine support.
