Cracked at the elbow into the rack housing. I considered cutting the tube and using the impact gun, but I really needed that line intact so I could get a replacement fabricated.

I'm about halfway into pulling the rack and it's not horrible work. Going to replace the steering shaft as the U-joint is pretty fragged even with years of layered Fluid Film, then later switched to Woolwax.
