You could upgrade your LPOP and dampner if you wanted to. You could also flush your coolant since you will need to remove radiator to get enough room to work in there.

Good luck!

Isnt the melling 208 (great lpop replacement) come with a new front seal? I replaced mine, and cant remember. Hwever, when i did replace my lpop, no radiator/IC/ac condensor..etc, were removed for this job. I did sleep at a holiday inn though, the previous night...

I do remember having to find a different/longer dampner bolt for the HB fit it to be correctly installed. Stock one just wont reach.

That's cool. I just like a lot of room to work and I have knocked a pin hole in the radiator before that required me to pull and it get it repaired. To each his own.

Good luck OP!
