    Most of us are into seville's. The deville? Why pull the heads first? Won't it come out with the heads on? It comes out of the STS that way.

    Personally, it's easier to drop the cradle.

    My mechanic lifted the engine from the tranny out the top of my 99 STS to do my headgaskets..

    It can be done that way but it was designed to come out the bottom. If you are doing it I recommend the cradle dropping method.
