Invest in a set of jack stands please.
Even cheap harbor freight ones are safer than the cinder blocks you are using.

If you get good at it you can have the tranny out in about an hour or less (about half an hour for my best time with rear wheels on a curb, front jacked up on jack stands in parking lot of my dad's work at the time) smile Now the fun stuff! smile

I'll use my lift and tranny jack. Too old to do the curb stuff anymore. I swore of laying on my back at any cost. I just can't do it anymore.
