DP install diy question with steering rack

When installing dp's do you guys recommend only unbolting the passenger side bolt of the steering rack and moving it up an inch or unbolting bolts to the steering rack and yanking the whole thing down?

DIY on the forum only moves it up and inch @ step 6

Mach schnell dp video does both but only pulls the rack up an inch @ 3:35

AR install dp video does both and yanks down the steering rack @ 9:00

The reason why I ask is because I had my entire steering rack replaced due to rack and pinion misalignment and I'm not sure if it's because I pulled the steering rack down for dp install or if it was from something else. Just want to clarify before putting dp's back in this weekend.
