I am in the process of doing it now, I do not believe you have to pull the engine but you will need the engine cradle that goes ove the shock towers and to the front frame to hols the engine up. This part is NOT rentable from auto parts stores. I am using an engine hoist to hold the engine up. I makes it a bit difficult to get under the car but doable. I expect the whole process to take about six hours. hope this helps. Lobo002
