i never knew it separated either, as far as i knew everyone would just drop the whole cradle out. to me it seems unnecessary to separate the two, and probably be better off dropping the whole cradle. unless you didnt have an engine support brace to hold the motor up. but what do i know, i dont have one... my 00 has a different subframe

On the same note.. the trans is the engine'* support, what good would it do to leave half of a subframe on if it provided no support.

No, I haven't, but then I never considered seperating the subframe either. I guess I'd have to be convinced that the two subframes are equal and even then it would seem like more trouble than it'* worth to seperate it.

Ummm....boosty didn't ask me if it seperated. He asked me if the subframe needed to drop.

Don did this 3 or 4 years ago, and I knew about it at least 2 years ago. I was going to do this very thing in my own driveway if DP hadn't stiffed me on my trans.

I admit..I didn't know the subframe came apart/seperated, however don't seperate and come apart mean the same thing? The PM I sent to crackhead #3 for the public viewing. Prep yourselves..Wren'* car screams louder in backpedal mode than any forward gears.

Subject: Subframe comes apart?
Bill... I've seen a couple of these babies sitting on the ground and I'm having a hard time finding it in the FSM.

A couple crackhead buddies of ours were trying to tell me the other day that the subframe comes apart for the transmission to slip out. Sounded like bull since they first thought it.

Your trans shop pulled the entire thing.. tell me it'* not possible to pull part of the subframe off to remove the trans out the bottom w/o pulling the entire subframe.

Yes, you need to support the engine from above with some sort of engine brace or hanger.

Seperating the half allows you to remove the trans out the driver'* side if the car is not lifted high enough to drop out the bottom.

Danger, Will Rodgers, danger!!! LMAO!

So can someone answer my questions then?

1. Is this seperatable subframe the same for '95-99 as it apparently is for '93?

2. I'm still confused as to the advantage of seperating the subframe and just dropping it. Does the seperating move allow for it to be done without a lift, easier? What is the advantage?

Edit: OK, so I posted slow. You answered question #2 already. How about question #1?
