Oil pan removal/axle support

Hello. Does anyone has an idea on how to remove an oil pan? I think axle support needs to be removed as well along with steering rack. Noticed heavy oil leak covering oil pan so i think it's a gasket or cracked pan.

Anything helps.

support the engine from the front hook at the top.

You will have to lower the front subframe.

I'd recommend looking at the bearing replacement threads for ideas. I have yet to do this but I will be doing it in the next few months!
