      Did you have to support transmission with something? Is anything bolted down on top of the subframe plate? What was the hard part about getting sway bar mounts back on, were they just not aligning?

      Wish I could find a place that would clean my valves for ~$600.

      I've asked 2 dealerships around and they quoted me $1,100 and $1,200 because they "have to remove the head"

      I didn't bother...

      Hm, that's pretty good. Altho, I think it should be possible to get the subframe out without removing power steering.

      It is fairly time consuming because of all the little parts you have to remove, but it is not very hard. I did mine 2 weeks ago and it took about 6 hours.

      No. Year doesn't necessarily determine the "Mark" because you can still get a 2011 MKIV in China, Dominican Republic, etc.
