The cross piece isn't very heavy and the idler is easy to drop. You may want to make it even easier by having a pickle fork handy and dropping the drag link from the pitman arm as well. Use some gasket adhesive to hold the gaskets and seals in place, put a little extra at the corners where the end seals mate with the side gaskets and you should be good. One thing I always do is put a thin steel block in the bolt channel and lightly tap the bolt holes from the other side so they are flat again. I think it gives a better seal.
