Try turning the rack to full lock, and then crank the sh!t out of your steering wheel. (I've never tried it before, but if we're resorting to brute force and ignorance as I often do, it just might work). Strip it!!

Chock the wheels on your car, chain the rack to your mom's car, and pull.

Make your brother do it.
You crack me up Scott.!!!!!! LOL

meh, what's the worst that could happen?

I think heat is key in this instance though.

if you take the brake booser vacume line off you can prob get a pipe or something down from the top and give it a little knocking, as stated lube it good ...( try not to hit it lower than the rubber bit as to not damage it) .... also with the flat head hammerd in makes this a lil easier...
