Re: '67 subframe tear down help
Basically take the shocks out and wind a reasonably thick chain thru the spring and "tie" it to the frame using nuts and bolts in the holes in the chain....leave just a little slack in the chain. Then you can do basically what you want, have someone sit on the upper A-arm when you pop it to keep weight on it and then he gets off and you're done. Then pop the lower ball joint to complete the job.
