Yes you would need to jack both up if you had an LSD
Oh and I think you'll find you would need to jack up a HSV to turn the tail shaft too. In fact any rear wheel drive car :)

Hahah trying to turn the tailshaft with the back wheels on the ground? that made me laugh really hard.

on a serious note you obviously have no idea what your doing

YOU MUST REMOVE THE TORQUE CONVERTER BOLTS!

the way an auto gearbox works is that the torque converter is bolted to the flywheel (which is bolted to the engine) and spins constantly.

although the torque converter can disconnect from the gearbox that is not the way to remove the gearbox. you must remove the bolts from the other side of the flywheel (you will break your gearbox if you dont remove the bolts)

Do yourself a favor and get a workshop manual for your car before you break something or drop a gearbox on your head when your under the car.

If you ever do get to remove the trans make sure the torque converter doesnt come off the trans as there will be fluid everywhere!!!
