Only if you have a lift to work under or some other way to pick up the
I personally hate to deal with the subframe, and it was much easier, IMO
to deal with the pieces separately. That's quite a mass (mess?) with
the motor and the tranny hanging off the back of it.
And no, I didn't touch the steering rack bracket. Granted, the
passenger side tie-rod was not installed since I had to put a different
one in to clear the wastegate, but the bracket was still there.
I guess this is one of those "personal preference" things. Make your
decision based on how much space you have to work in, how big a mass of
parts you want to deal with, and the tools (hoist and/or lift) you have
