its not too hard. Get it up as high as you can on jack stands. I would recommend removing the front sway bar ( makes removal much easier for the little work it takes to remove ) . IIRC it comes out the passenger side much easier than the drivers side, i.e slide it toward the passenger side first to get the driverside tie rod to clear the inside of the frame. And be careful not to tear the bellows on the new rack or you will be fixing that too. Take your time and think things through. At first it will seem like it wont come out, expecially with the sway bar in place. The two bolts on the passenger side strap do have nuts behind them so you will probably have to dig through the grime to find them. Good luck and let us all know how it goes.
