Can Rack & Pinion Be R&R Without Dropping subframe?

Question for the group. I have a 2000 Ford Focus ZX3 (need to update my car status) that has an internal leak and fluid is running along tierod and collecting on inside tire rim. My book states to drop the sub-frame, but after 12 years of CT winters, the sub-frame mount bolts are pretty much fuse-rusted on and will not budge with break bar. Question, can the R&P be replaced by pulling it out the side, maybe undo the passenger motor mount and lift up the engine a bit on the oil pan? Any feedback would be most appreciated.
