Manual/power steering

I've been thinking about getting a manual steering rack on my car instead of power steering does anybody else use manual? If so do you like it more?

Parking lots are a major pita with manual rack. As long as the car is rolling it's not bad.

I used to dd a full size bronco on 33x12.5 tires with a manual rack. It's definitely doable.

Ok that's what I needed to know, I think as long as it's doable and not too hard to turn the wheel while going slow it may be worth it to never have to worry about the PS pump or fluid

Armstrong steering is a pain, but very do-able. Why do you want to switch? I've had no trouble with mine.
