Best place to brace when taking off tube to get to right dif

Ok I have the right final off. Now I need to remove the tube so I can get to the differential seal. Where is the best place to brace the tractor? I have to stands and a 2-ton engine hoist at my disposal.

Maybe the others will comment about supporting the tractor.
I wanted to say there is an oil seal in each final drive unit, behind the brake drum that is good to replace whenever you have the final drive off the tractor, if the seals are old. The seals leak, like the seals in the transmission case, and oil can get on the brakes.
You have to remove the brake drum to get to the seal. Remove the brake drum key from the shaft also. Then remove the cap held on with the 4 bolts, on the outside of the casting. Then the shaft slides out of the case. Don't remove the snap ring on the bearing, slide the whole shaft out through the hole in the case.
Then you can hammer the seal out from the back side of it, using a long punch.
So to do both sides of the Cub, there are 4 seals total on the upper shafts.
Here is the seal at TM Tractor if you want to look at it.
Also pics from TM Tractor, maybe you knew this before. :)
