+1 that is how I did mine at home, worked pretty wellOK, so now I watched it...here's my input:
2. Its a little different when taking the wheel off for me...I do it on ground level, vs where you are doing it on a lift. When I pull the wheel off, while taking the axle out..I actually sit behind the bike with my butt on the ground...it would be indian style, but I use the inside sides of my feet to hold the wheel in place, from underneath. I hold the top of the wheel up with my right hand and pull the axle out with my left...once the axle is out..nothing drops..its still in place and I can slowly lower it to ground level and set aside the caliper/hanger and spacers.
