When I installed my class 3 Curt hitch I just removed the nuts and tapped the bolts with a mallet and it removed easily from the frame. Then I installed the hitch. removing the tow hook, and installing the hitch was relatively painless. The hardest part of the whole thing was installing/routing the factory tow harness and getting snapped into all the correct places...
My removed rear tow hook is on a shelf in my garage.
