Actually Damemorder and I put the car on jack stands, then put the jack under the control arm when we wanted it to be loaded. Worked quite well (we were also dropping the struts down, but eh...)
You're taking the whole bar out up front, so it'* necessary to have the wheels off. It takes a lil fidgeting. Pull it out on the passenger side, and you could eventually get it out. Having a buddy help you with this is necessary, and be sure not to scratch the fender. I was the man uptop so i didn't see exactly how it came out, but once the mount was past the passenger fender, it was pointed up basically.
