Disconnect the steering linkage and tie rod ends, disconnect the power steering lines. Remove the two brackets holding the rack to the frame. To install remanufactured rack reverse order and bleed the system ot get all the air out of the lines. Don't let steering wheel move. Probably 3.5 hour job plus fluid. There will be a core charge on the steering rack. You will need to get an alignment after the installation.
