2001 Oil Pan Leaking

by Dennis
(Hesperia, Ca)

I have most of the bolts out of the upper oil pan. I need to drop the sub frame, and I'm having trouble dropping the sub frame down for clearance to get the oil pan out. I took out the bolts that hold the rack and pinion, and of coarse loosened the 4 nuts that hold the sub frame. Also the lower motor mount nuts. I am working on a lift, so I'm not on the ground. The sub frame moves when I pry on it, but it's not dropping down. What am I doing wrong? Any tips would be appreciated.
