I need to lift the radiator up about 1 inch to replace the power steering cooler on my 97 landcruiser I have removed the 4 bolts on top and the 2 holding the fan shroud are there any more on the bottom. Or maybe the radiator is stuck and just needs worked with to break loose. Thanks

Jolee - It has been a while since I had mine out but I recall there being a bracket on each side bolted with rubber bushings that secures the radiator on the bottom. If I recall correctly these were difficult to get at. Here is the drawing and removal instructions for a 1996 I would think it is similar to yours....

I took the 2 body mounts at the front loose and was able to get enough space to install the new power steering cooler. Thanks for the info.
