Heres the how to I used when doing my clutch. The thread is a bit old & there aren't many pics anymore. It's not a big deal to do.
https://www.evolutionm.net/forums/ev...s-trivial.html


-Unbolt rear dogbone mount (1 bolt & nut) behind lower part of engine at the firewall
-Remove cover over steering shaft in drivers footwell, Remove bolt holding rack to steering shaft, Compress clip on shaft (stays on shaft) & slide shaft up to dissconnect
-Dissconnect both PS lines going to rack & unlip them where they are mounted
-Remove lower motor mount bracket & mount together
-Remove both chassis stiffening cross bars
-Dissconnect lower control arm ball joint
-Dissconnect swaybar end links
-I placed a 3 foot section of 2x4 on a floor jack to support the subframe while lowering it. The subframe is uneven so the lengthy 2x4 helps even it out.
-Remove the 6-8 bolts holding subframe in place
-Slowly lower subframe while someone up top guides the PS lines thru or contiunually stop & feed them yourself if you dont have a helper.

Hope this helps.

Alright so this weekend as long as weather permits, I should be getting the old sub frame out and the new one in, and I also found out that the clip to the rear o2 sensor is inside the car under the passenger seat. As for the power steering hoses, should I disconnect the from the reservoir or from where they attach to the hard lines on the sub frame?
