Taurus alternator

Anybody ever had to put an alternator on a 96 Taurus with the 3.0 DOHC engine? How did you get it out of the car after getting the bolts out?

I did all that except lowering the sub frame. I was able to get the alt. out by removing the drive axle, I think this was easier than the subframe method.
