If the rack bolts directly on the axle then dropping the axle will not cause a problem. Bumpsteer will not be a problem because the rack will move with the axle and the relationship of the rack to the steering arms will be constant. The question I have is how do you account for the movement of the rack relative to the steering column. The length of the steering shaft will have to change as the axle moves up and down. If there is a well engineered solution for steering shaft then it is a very simple system.
