89 trans am torque arm problem!

Ok, going to put a torque arm back into this car, 89 trans am. When i took it out the rear end decided to slip, and the rear end yoke is pointing up tword the floor too much for the bolt holes in the torque arm is lined up.

My question, how can i get the front of the rear end pointed down enough so i can get the bolts in? Any thoughts are welcome!

Jack the car up so the rear end is hanging and give it a twist.

Tried that, ended up using a scissor jack wedged between the car and the rear end to push it down enough to get a bolt in. Thanks all!

Did you think you could run the car without it ?

lol, not that dumb!

too it out cause we were going to pull the trans, but the friend that owned the car decided to part ways with it instead.

...although...a sixth coil/pullbar system WOULD be an answer to this style of rear susp. wheel hop issues! ...if only i had the time.
