Correct me if I'm wrong but I think if trans and carb is operating with cable I don't need to loose anything more than the body bushings ...?

My car was on a lift and I used tower stands to raise the body. I left the core support alone when I did mine. You just have to remove the bolts, jack the rear of the body up and starting in the front, slip the rubber mounts and bolts in place. The lower the body and make sure its still in the correct position and then tighten the bolts.
