Is it difficult to change the rack and pinion on a 99 grand am Will the car have to be put on a rack or can it be done at home?

I'm working on a rack & pinion replacement on a 2000 Grand Am GT 3.4l w/auto trans now with no lift. It has been difficult, I'm 6 hours into the job and have it completely disconnected but cannot get it out of the drivers wheel well, as instructed by Haynes manual for the car. I believe the subframe or engine cradle or whatever you want to call it needs to be lowered a bit. When I figure it out I'll post again.
