Default Rack and Pinion install help!

My Rack and Pinion gave out and I just bought a refurbished one. I was going to install it myself with a friend, but we’ve never changed something like that and may not even have all the right tools. Does anyone know how much something like that will cost with labor and such if I went to a mechanic to install it? Im in Orange County so if anybody knows any shops that could do it feel free to let me know!

All data has it at 3.5 labor hours. Most shops are about $85-$100 an hour. That's if they go off of all data pay. Plus an alignment if not included

I've done this myself. It's a lot of work but patience is key. Expect a full day to do it yourself if not more. Also sometimes the refurbished ones will still leak so I had to buy oem seals for mine which prolonged the process. Hope all goes well.
