yeah thought so...
how exactly is that done? do one of the mounts need to be taken out in order for the whole engine/transmission to be moved so it can come out?

well at the end they did take out the subframe but charged the same so I'm good! lol

im in the middle of a torsen install, and i can see why some people recomend removing the subframe, the tranny gets hung up on it a lot when trying to lower it.
i left my subframe on btw.
