    Did you bleed the system after the rack instail?
    Hows the fluid level?
    Any leaks now?
    When it feels like you have no powerstearing, Try giving it some gas, in neutral and turn the wheel at the same time, does that help any?

    check if any of your lines touch your headers... maybe boiling the thing unvoluntarily.

    yes it can but one of the bolts ..i believe on the drivers side ..i had to cut off with a sawzall because when it comes up it hits the engine block. When i put the new one in i just put it in from the bottom... its a pretty straight forward install tho
