Have just recently done some of the front end work and I also reread 
Scotts information.  To get the subframe out you will need to pull the 
lower control arms out of the subframe. What  I do before I dive into a 
major project is get as much information as possible, then go look at 
the job on the car to visualize what I will need to do.  If you go lay 
under the car and see how it is put together Scotts  information will 
make sense.
