Question about 1996 Pontiac Firebird
Once you're under the car, Remember be safe, use jack stands, etc, You should have 4 bolts that connect the driveshaft to the yoke of the rear end. These will probably be really tight, you may need a cheater bar to break them loose. Once the rear of the drive shaft drops down then you should be able to pull the driveshaft straight back, toward the rear and it should drop out of the rear of the transmission. You may have some tranny fluid leaking out. While doing this you want to handle the Ujoints carefully so that you don't allow the caps to fall off, losing some of the needle bearings, unless you're going to replace the Ujoints.On that age of car, the driveshaft might be in there pretty tight so you may have to use some force, be careful. Good luck.
