I replaced this bush on a Mini many years ago, but removed (either chose to
or had to, can't remember) the rack to do it. A horrible job for a
tuppeny-happeny (in the UK at least!) bush, one of the worst parts was
threading the tie rod retainer back onto the rack without cross-threading
its very fine thread.
