My rack sprung a leak so I'm changing it. Quick question Question

Do I have to drop the rear of the cradle to get it out? Everything is disconnected & I removed the sway bar. I wiggled the rack around a little bit & there doesnt seem to be enough room around the "column to rack" area to get it out. I was hoping it would slide out the passengers side like a sway bar, but looking like thats not the way!

Thanks!

if you want more room, just undo the back 2 cradle bolts. throw a jack under it before you let it loose.

Loosen the front two as well about a third of the way so you don't stress the cradle. It's aluminum which has a tendency to break rather than bend.
