    Can anyone confirm that the only possible way to replace the rear AC lines is to raise the body off the chassis?

    Yes, on the passenger-side that is what it looks like has to happen. I don't know of any shortcuts without the possibility of damaging (bending, then unbending) the new lines.
    Depending on the amount of rust, this may not be an easy driveway job. The vehicle must be on firm and level ground with the wheels chocked.
    Always perform operations like this safely, with the proper tools and skills.
    You will need to reclaim (if the system has anything left in it), evacuate with a vacuum pump and recharge the system with R-134a:

    14. Remove all body mount bolts on the passenger side of the vehicle and loosen the body mount bolts on the drivers side.
    15. Place a jackstand at the front and rear of the vehicle on the passenger side so that the stands will safely support the body.
    16. Remove the five screws (7) that secure the underbody lines (1) to the vehicle underbody (2).
    17. Carefully lower the hoist until the right side of the body (supported by the stands) is approximately 76-101 mm (3-4 in.) above the frame. This will gain access to remove the underbody line assembly.
    18. Remove the underbody line assembly from the underneath of the vehicle body.
