on autodata it says 1.8 hours to remove and install the steering rack

thats 1.8 hours if you know what your doing, have all the right tools and a proper ramp to do it on. Iv done them in just under 1.5 hours but then there's the wheel alignment to set. you have to drop the front sub frame down a touch and disconnect the anti roll bar links,and also remember to secure the steering wheel as soon as you disconnect the rack. you don't want to damage the clock spring and i have seen it break the brake pedal switch once.
