replacing inner tie rods on Ford Ranger

1999 Ford Ranger, 3.0 liter V6, 2 wheel drive, coil spring front suspension.
I plan on replacing the inner tie rods on my Ranger. My question is: Do I have to remove the steering rack, as my Ford factory manual states to change the inner tie rods? It looks to me as if I remove the outer tie rod ends and the boots (bellows) I would have enough room to unscrew the inner tie rods while the rack is still on the truck. Thanks, billj

Re: replacing inner tie rods on Ford Ranger

I have always replaced the entire rack assy, but it's worth a shot. There should be room to get them out.
