Can the oil pan be dropped with the motor still in the car I have a leaking rear main oil seal it a 2 piece seal.

If so do I need to lift the motor up to do so or not.

You can but you have to rotate the crank so front of pan will clear the counterweights as it is pulled back until pan is clear of the cross member and can be dropped down

Cool I have to put the car back on jacks once again.

As Vetteoz said, yes. I also removed my K braces when I did mine for more room. Not an overly fun job but doable.
