Sure. When I removed the oil pan, it was loose as I went around the perimeter and loosened all the bolts first. Kinda surprised me, most cars have them glued on, but the pan came right off, no prob.

So if it ever does go bad, I got a $30 gasket sitting under my workbench!

Well, it would fluctuate between 60 psi and 20 psi before. Now, it holds steady at 50 psi cold and then between 40-50 psi (depending on revs) once all warmed up.

BTW, I have heard (and looking under my wife'* '04 LeSabre, I believe) that getting the oil pan off the 2000+ H-Body is much more involved, as you have to remove that big bracket beneath the crankcase pulley.

I changed it yesterday. Was messy, but overall pretty easy. I noticed a pickup in oil pressure also. Thanks for the guidance guys.
