Steering problem
1998 Ford Contour 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles

i have a 98 contour, automatic, 135000 miles DOHC 6 cyl.
My rack and pinion are leaking profusely.
Mechanic said the rack and pinion need replaced.
Quoted me at $550. 5 hrs in labor.
I have pulled transmissions before but not by myself.
Can I replace this by myself with only putting the car up on blocks?
Is their a procedure somewhere?
I will most likely be doing this by myself, is it possible?
Are their any special tools required to do this?

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No
