I used a sawz all to cut mine out. If you don't want to mess up the alignment I would just drop the cradle. According to the shop manual link posted above the C7 has a guide pin that should keep...

The wing was damaged in the accident. Frame is ripped off at the front but the drivetrain is probably ok. The car has a full AP Racing kit on it that is probably ok and Katech rims.
