11.2 - Front Subframe Removal ( Merritt Smith,  )

* REMOVE the splined bolt holding the lower steering column to the steering box. Failure to completely remove this bolt can result in damage to components in the steering column!
* If you have power steering, drain the system and disconnect the hoses from the steering box. Cover the hose ends and openings to prevent the entrance of contaminants.
* Jack up the front of the car high enough that the front tires can roll under the bumper. Support the car securely with heavy-duty jackstands.
* Remove the road wheels.
* Disconnect the front brake lines at the flexible hoses.
* Replace the road wheels.
* Support the suspension cross-member with a floor jack.
* Remove the bolts at the rear suspension mounts, sway-bar mounts, and remove the nuts and bolts at the front suspension mounts.
* Lower the suspension onto the wheels. Watch the steering column spline for binding. Roll the suspension out on the wheels.
