There are a number of steps prior to the removal of the OEM clip. Remove the transmission, steering linkage, radiator and engine. The front factory brake lines will have to be reworked to fit this new clip. The rear hard lines doesn't need any alterations. You won't be able to use the OEM steering column with the new TCI front clip. TCI recommends an ididit column with two new steering U-joints, and a new shaft. Once these are removed support the vehicle on a set of sturdy jackstands. These jackstands must be positioned just below the firewall on the flat side. Remove the four anchor points on the OEM clip and roll it out of the way. There's no turning back now-we're committed.
