    So I'm looking for some help, I'm close but struggling with the steering connection. I found 1 bolt 13mm that I fully removed but the rack still isn't pulling out. Since I'm helpful somewhat here is pics.

    Well you removed the bolt but that is a soft brass clamp you need to spread it a little and collapse the shaft to disconnect. You will probably destroy your clock spring if you are not extremely careful also.

    Steering rack is attatched to the k member by two long bolts.

    Steering shaft by that one bolt, and is slip fit to the rack.

    Looks like a lot of rust there.
    maybe get some heat on it and pry it loose?

    Thank you All! I was able to get it done. I had to get a screwdriver and pry the clamp apart then it pulled right out. Sat here trying to decide if I should do a new thread or add on, addon won.

    This is my first Mustang I actually haven't even really driven one other than a brand new one for a few hours. But anyways, are they supposed to feel like they have a rear end shake? It just seems really loose in the rear
