lol!! I actually didn't find this out until a last night...I basically supported the motor by the pan with a jack, then unbolted the engine mounts from the subframe, lifted motor up enough to get motor mounts out, unbolted passenger side motor mount from motor and sub frame dropped 1"...25 min job tops. The hook is useful for aligning the motor mounts left to right. I would have rather used a harbor freight engine support if I would have found out about the tow hook first lol!!
