Rack replacement

Greetings listers:
  Before I start to replace the rack in my 85 5kt, I thought I would
solicit any updated methods that have evolved over the years.  I have
Bill Samaras' summary from Dec 1993 in the archives before me. Is there
a "steak knife" method available?(bad humor for early Sun morn).  Also,
what is the best brand/make to buy and what is the best source?
  My 85 has 125k miles on odometer and leaks about a liter a month when
summer temps are up there.  The steering is getting a bit loose and
although I have done left front wheel bearing and same-side tie rod,
nothing else on suspension has been touched.  The struts are next.
   Thanks in advance for any tips on the job.
