HOW TO REMOVE ENGINE CRADLE

2002 Chevrolet Venture • 106,000 miles

Just bought this van as a clean title repairable and it has L.H. Framerail damage and the cradle is bent and has to be replaced to pull the framerail. How do I support the engine to replace the cradle? I have done this many times on cars with cradle that sets on top of the strut mounts and core support and supports the engine by the hooks but this van is the first! Any and all help is greatly appreciated! P.S. This is a fwd van only. THANK YOU

Otc makes a engine suport bar with hooks that sits on top of the strut towers. They have one on ebay for like 127 with free shipping.
