No, you don't have to remove it. Remove the rack bracket bolts and lines, then slide out the steering rack. The difficult part is removing the steering lines connected to the rack.

I usually removed the rear subframe bolts and lowered the back of the subframe for a little more room and better access to the lines. That said, I have a fully-equipped shop to work in with vehicle lifts and tree-jacks.
