I would get a long piece of steel tubing, pull your rack measure overall length from outer tie rod end to end, cut length plus like 1 inch on each side, drill holes for your length dimension for bolts that will fit through outer tie rod holes and bolt it in. You could probably use a long 2X4 also, but might have to clearance ends to fit under wheels.
I think that will create a problem when raising or lowering the car though. Maybe I can just take a strip of scrap steel and tack it up between the spindle and lower control arm? That should theoretically hold it straight and let the suspension rise and fall as normal while still installed in the car and I work on it.
Or maybe I should just try to find a spare front crossmember with rack still installed, to do the work on instead? Main reason I wanted to do it with the rack I have is I don't have any room right now really to do anything else (and I don't want to end up with a spare front suspension laying around that nobody wants to buy).
