not to hard you just got to drill out all the spot welds holding it in place. the hard part is squring out the suport.but once you squre it, weld it.

x2 square it and level it and then double check before making final welds

I just got finished doing this. I'm happy as hell that I did this myself instead of paying a body shop to do it. Quoted $900 for everything, bought a new core support for $90 I think, and welded it myself at a machine shop for $100. Took about four hours to do, taking the old one off was the longest part without a doubt.
