    Thanks, but it seems i have more damage to my car than I thought, the steel frame that holds the latch is bent in , Any suggestions on bending or pulling the frame forward , or am i looking at a new front clip ?

    really , because when i look at it , it seems welded to the frame. i see 2 bolts were it connects to the front fenders but i dont think thats all it needs to come off, would u mind asking your friend how he did it , and if it was just the 2 bolts or, did he have to cut or break welds ?

    everything should just unbolt and the new one should just bolt right up. i checked on ebay and you can get a new one for just over 100 bucks but you might be able to get one cheaper at a local junkyard

    i just replaced the rad support in mine a couple months ago, so if you need any tips let me know. it was pretty easy though...take everything off the front end, break the stock welds, line the new one up. bolt it on, spot weld it, put everything back together, and you're done.
