Default Subframe removal does help, Oilhammer is right

So based on Oilhammer's recommendation and procedure description, I removed the subframe, as I am having the typical difficulties in removing the EGR cooler and wanted more working room. I wrote numbers on the bolts and the frame near the bolts with a marker so I can put each back where it came from. I do plan on cleaning them. My floor jack functioned like a transmission jack and the part easily came off. The 2 longest of the supposedly single use bolts have an unusual shape and some sort of grease on the working end threads. I am guessing that the subframe together with the dogbone assembly probably weigh under 25 lbs, but I am tired and don't care to weigh it right now. It is very nice to have all that additional working room on the back side of the engine.
