You don't need to remove the rack and jack the motor up with Pacemakers. Drop the RH tie rod and that's it. You may have to undo the shaft linkage as well, but the last 5 or 6 sets I have fitted to the VS 5.0L, all I have had to do was drop the tie rod.

ok thanks mate great to hear! hopefully ill be able to do the same with these lukeys.
i know the pace makers are meant to be better, but with a stock motor with exhaust and cai im guessing they wouldnt be much different?
