Hi are you talking about the cooler at the front attached to the front crossmember ?
or the pipes direct to the steering rack ?

I have never had to lower the subframe to get to the pipes to swap although short 18mm spanner is good for the rack and removing the bumper is good for the cooler on the crossmember
