Is rack&pinion diy replacement worth it?

so ive come to the conclusion after much research that my 05 g6 gt(electric power steering) needs a new rack&pinion. im curious as to if it is worth the money to just pay a shop to do it... if anyone has any experience with replacing their R&P, whether you did it yourself or had a shop do it it would be much appreciated.
thanks in advance!

You know there was a recall for the electric power steering, right? Just go to a dealer and they'll perform the fixes for free.
