I usually get a friend to help me lower it off the jack and onto the 
ground. That reduces the clearance you need to about 24".

I'm always impressed by people who manage to do this alone. I've 
always gotten a friend to help. 4 hands make it a lot easier.when you 
don't have a lift, especially when you're putting the engine back in.
