I badically only need to unbolt 4 body mount bushings to separate body and frame at this stage.

I think i'll play it safe and renove the entire front end as well like most advice me to..

Thx again

Just one of those... if you are going to do that much work... may as well go all the way and not regret it 6 months from now

I know a guy who left the front clip on but I wouldn't suggest it. It is way to easy to remove the complete front clip(one piece), it only has about a dozen bolts holding it on and you don't chance kinking sheet metal

Well.. I tried lifting it slowly to see what would happen and i must say removing the front clip is totally unecessary..

Happy it worked, I would support the radiator core support even though the radiator is out.

Lilbowtie where did you get my pic? Yep that's my car. Currently actually. I hurt my back so it's still in the same exact place LOL no reason to pull the front clip if you dont have to!

I stand corrected. I learn things on here all the time.
