We did the cradle tip thing (dropped the back, left front hooked up)when we developed a leak at the track. Worked very well. Didn't take much of a drop to gain proper access.
Thanks. I thought that this method would work. Here is how I envision the process:
1. Disconnect dog bone(s) I have two
2. Lift up car just until rear wheels leave the ground ( we have a lift)
3. Remove CAI coupling
4. Remove rear wheels
5. heater hose at LIM.
5. Engine to pipe hoses/coolant?
5. check all wires for enough slack.
6. loosen front cradle bolts
7. Remove deck lid??/
put jack on rear of cradle support cradle and remove both rear cradle bolts. Lower rear of cradle down
It sounds very doable but this is my first attempt at this. Is that the process that you used???
