Oil Cooler Lines

I'm about to install the new trailhead lines on my 97. Just curious...should I go ahead and drain the oil before installing them?

...and you'll still get the contents of the lines and the "cooler" tube dumped out too. Don't put that drain pan too far away.

It makes a mess, but you will only lose about a quart of oil. I've changed a handful without draining the oil.
