    Just pop off the twno uts holding it on, the tierod ends, steering shaft, and the two lines....it comes right out. Make sure when you take the tie rods off of the rack, count the turns. SCrew them onto the new one that many times. You'll be close as far as your toe adjustments go. The rack bushings might give you a bit of grief pulling it off but it will come off...

    It will bolt on but not everything will bolt up. You'd have to use a cross between fox and sn95 parts to make it work. I believe the fox rack is narrower than ours b/c I KNOW the a-arms on a fox are more narrow than sn95's so you'd have to use a combo of parts.
