Hello, you will have to remove the steering gear cross member. It's not load bearing, you'll want to use a couple of jack stands or a jack to lower the rack some after removing the cross member to loosen the lines. I'll post a link below to the removal procedure. Copy and paste the link in your web browser to view. If you have any questions just reply back. IF not, please take a moment to rate my service. Thanks!
