Elsolo, where did you get your R&P from? I have checked around Napa, Autozone, Advance and cheapest I could find is $220.

In case anyone looks back at this. Cheater bar extension was used to remove the sub-frame bolts. I had to let the sub-frame hang down to replace the R&P. It was a PITA, took most of the day. The bracket that holds the two lines together uses a 7/32 bolt. I couldn't find a metric that worked.
