I have never done one but when i do things like this i look and think of how was it done on the assembly line ,my guess is that the whole engine/ gearbox is lowered down on the sub frame then lift car body up to drag it out ,easier than you think once you get started lower the front subframe with everything on then jack body up off the engine unit .if you have a nice A frame even easier or a block and tackle with a convienent tree

1998 Chevy Camaro V6 automatic. What are the probable causes for DTC P0422?


Most likely your catalytic converter is worn out. If never changed, that is probably it. The other possibility is the engine is not running at the optimum fuel/air ratio, so a tune-up or engine repair is necessary. Here is a link to that code: http://www.obd-codes.com/p0422

Taking a 93 camaro front clip and installing it on


That is not even close to just bolting right up.If you want a camaro clip in your old truck you should use a clip from a 70 to 81 camaro.The subframes come out easy and are a fairly easy weld in as they are close to the same width as your truck frame.If you are not a skilled welder or fabricator you should just rebuild your truck front end,as this is NOT a job for a novice mechanic.A 93 camaro does not have a removable subframe like an older camaro they just have an engine cradle type frame that bolts up into the camaro not a frame that will work in your truck.
