I'm taking out some walls and adding new ones in a different layout. What is the best way of removing the studs to keep them intact to use them again in the new walls. I've considered cutting them with a sawzall near the end and using an extra 2x4 as a bottom plate to make up the differnce.

Any suggestions?

that would work but why not just cut the nails under the studs? lots less work.if you cant get the blade under the stud between bottom plate and bottom of stud pry it up a hair with a flat bar
