Re: Any Radiator R&R tips?
Well, I did it with a set of ramps. It's not THAT hard ... but it's not as easy as we could wish! *grins*
There's enough height between the bottom of the opening and the concrete when on my Rhino Ramps to clear.
Do be aware that you'll need to top off the auto tranny (you'll lose some fluid), so you may want to schedule an oil and fluid check at the local Quick Lube shop, if there's any that aren't totally incompetent in your area.
335K miles on original motor and tranny (only motor work 2 x LIM replacement), Monroe SensaTrac struts front and back (new at approx. 300K miles), and Alero discs in back. LS fogs added with custom wiring. HID high beams, HIR low and halogen fogs. Raybestos Pro Grade front rotors and Bendix D747 ceramic pads on front.
Addendum: Rest in peace. Surge tank blew, motor overheated, I think she's lived a long and useful life.
