front 

 

struts removed 14mm  x  3  on the tower. then 2x 21mm nuts for the spindle side

53742586_2028997863816546_53551899158668

 

 

placed jack stands on the transmission to hold the engine not falling off when the subframe is being unbolted.

 

53551196_2028998013816531_68976940740992

 

dropped the diff.bolted with 8x 17mm on the diff mount while the cv is bolted on the diff with 6x 12mm each side. its must easier to move the subframe without the differential bolted in. also gives you room to remove the engine mount nuts 14mm nuts

Can't wait to see this build thread progress!  I've seen what your rig looks like now on Facebook, so I look forward to seeing the story of how it got where it is.
