I am restoring a 68 RS and I'm at the place where all that is left is the sub-frame and the rear end.

Do I need to remove the sub-frame from the car to replace the rubber washers?

Is their a good reason to (or not to) remove the sub-frame from the car?

I have a small garage and the car is on jack stands. If I remove the frame, where do I put the jack stands so they won't hurt the car?

I'm new to restoration but not Camaro's. I had a 67 in High School (1976) and now I'm in a position where I'm restoring one. But I'm really a novice.

Any suggestions?

The car will be perfectly happy and safe with jackstands at the front and rear of the rockers. Put a board between the stand and the car.

If the front clip, steering, and brake lines are off, there's nothing to hold you back from pulling the sub. I did mine with the sub attached, and was easily able to drop one side at a time to refinish that part of the floor and the top of the sub, and replace the bushings. Only did it that way to avoid messing with the brakeline and fuel line, which I then chose to replace 2 years later with the car all together (not fun and a bad choice---lol).
