hey guys, on my 99 taco with a 6'' TM and 3" SAW lift, i'm gonna be taking them off tomorrow, obviously the rack and pinion steering has to come off. does anyone have a write up, or pics on how to do so? Will i need any special tools besides basic bigass wrenches, and are there any tricks to making this easier?

i think there is a write up on the NE site, i know there should be one for replacing the rack bushings, when i replaced my bushings, i pretty much had the rack off, and i didn't have to use any special tools, if you are taking it off completely then you will need to take the tie rod ends out, and sometimes people use a puller for that, but i don't think it is a necessity
