Dropping the engine & transmission as a unit is easier for some. They
can then be separated on the ground.

For additional room, some prefer to remove the front bumper and then
slide the radiator forward 6" for greater clearance.

Depending on the engine, removing the exhaust manifold & downpipe
also makes things easier.

For even more room, remove the lower subframe & control arms, but then
the steering rack has to be tied-up & supported some how.
