Arun took the words right out of my mouth: Thank goodness it ain't
the HP hose to the rack, and "I don't remember exactly."  :-(

 From the bomb replacement I did 3 yrs ago, I can recall little other
than using jackstands and lying for a long time on my back . It was
definitely do-able, altho a mechanic friend told me later that he
always drops the subframe to do bomb replacements. I didn't.  Let's
see, I believe this the banjo fitting that requires having a good
grip around the bomb in order to keep it from turning while the
fitting is loosened/tightened? I seem to recall gripping it with an
oil-filter wrench and some thick cardboard wrapped around the bomb.
