I just removed the steering shaft to replace exhaust header gaskets yesterday.

The upper and lower bolts should be removed from couplers, pull them completly out, as there is a flat milled on the shaft to keep it on if the bolts become loose.  Remove driver side nut on steering rack and loosen passenger side nut. This gives you movement to slide rack forward to get lower coupler off rack shaft. Spread couplers and remove. Try to keep steering wheel alingment so you don't have to remove steering wheel to reposition it. I also clamped the steering shaft so it would not slide up in the housing when assembling the upper coupler.


Good luck
