Default Cost of replacing an engine cradle?

How much is it going to cost me to get the engine cradle in my 97 lt1 camaro replaced? About how many hours or labor are we talking for something like this?

I assume you mean the K-member?

Are you going tubular or stock?

It shouldn't be too hard to be honest. My friends part out cars and they just drop the k-member to get the engine out.

It would require:

having the car on a lift

unbolting the suspension

unhooking the brake lines and ABS wires

unbolt the steering knuckle

pull the bolts out the motor mounts

support the drive train and drop the craddle.

I maybe missing a few things but that's the just of it. A good shop should have it done in a few hours. Figure five to be safe.
