Who has installed a rack and pinion on a WK???
 
I was replacing mine today and ran into a problem, I have no room to pull it out! What have you guys done? I am planning on dropping the front diff to give me more clearance, I have no idea why Chrysler engineers would make these things impossible to change! Any help out there??

This project is by far one of the most difficult I have done in a long time. :thumbdown:

It is finally done! lol took me a total of 6 hours since I had to do it on a private parking lot open to the elements. No power which means no power tools :(
Just need a good alignment.

Thanks for asking :)

I bought it rebuilt which so far it hasn't leaked which is good, The steering feels like it's supposed to now which is what I wanted.
And yes, A freaking nightmare! lol I did it on my condos private parking lot so it sure was a pain.

Does look tight in there. I will have the engine out of the way when I do mine so hope it will come out that way.
