Shouldn't be too hard, give it a shot. Worse comes to worse you would have to take it to a professional.

What parts did you swap? Did you change out the steering link too or just the rack?

Edit, by link I mean universal joint between the rack and the column.

FWIU you need to swap out the uni joint from a manual to power if you have a power rack. You may find one locally - maybe Kevin has one (t53a).
