I use unrar for that exact functionality. To install run:
sudo apt-get install unrar
or install unrar using synaptic
After installed, you can navigate to directory where your rar files
are, then run:
unrar e rarfile.r00
where rarfile.r00 is the first file in the sequence. unrar will then
automatically find all of the other files and join them together into
one extracted file. The e stands for extract.
Hope this helps.
