Good to hear you got it out. We had the same issue when we were dissassembling the rack.

Most racks only require a four tooth socket to remove the nut. Ours required a five tooth socket. So we had to machine one.

Once the rack was completely disassembled, it was time to start detailing.
Not every day that you get to see the guts of your power steering rack!

The guys at Lee's Power steering helped us out. They are second to none.
