I did a query at some point about a year ago. You may want to search for it. I used 2 2x4 blocks screwed together on one side and a brick on the other. This wasn't enough after I had attempted pan removal so had to reinstall temporarily and insert 3/4 inch wood shims for the additional needed clearance.

Also, remember that oil pick-up protrudes a couple of inches into pan which makes removal tough and involves a lot of twisting and contorting (and maybe a little cursing) of pan to remove (be careful with pick-up end so you don't bend). Also, organize your bolts to put same ones in same place and don't overtighten.

Also, you will likely need to remove anti-sway bar at front (simple R&R).

Good luck. Feel free to respond for any additional needed info.
