Default Subframe/mount stupidity

Did something stupid today while doing a crank swap for a fella. Forgot to undo the rack from the subframe, pulle the trans out the side, turned the steering wheel (battery out the whole time, so the SRS was completely disabled) to get back to work on a few things, and the wheel didn't move.

I'm having one h*ll of a time getting that Ujoint fitting from the rack to fit into the sterring shaft again. Any tips/suggestions? I've tapped with a mallet, tried to press it using a jack, oiled it up....nothing. I removed the dust boot so I can get the joint together, then i'll bolt the boot back in there when it's together and attatch it to the rack with the pinch bolt.

Any hints as to how to get this thing together again?

The ujoint isn't the problem, it's that hollow shaft that slips (my ass it does) over the steering shaft from the wheel. Damned thing won't go on.
