Can you remove the oil pan without having to raise the engine or removing the steering linkage? C3 350 L82 motor.

Thanks

You will need to drop the steering linkage to get the pan off....no other way around it. It's not too much trouble, tho.  You do not need to raise the engine at all. You do not have to completely remove the steering linkage, just disconnect it from the frame on the pass side, and the PS ram from the frame on the driver side, and let it hang.
