1987 Conquest V8 Steering

HI Guys new to this site, i have put together several cars but no major fabrication. i just bought a 8 second conquest 340 blower setup .
whoever did the front suspension fabricated several things and it looks fine but the turning ratio sucks , I cant drive it on the street that easy as I cant get the wheels to turn all the way. i looked around undernieth and one reason is that the tie rod ends (heims) hit the strut bar ends at the steering nuckle. This car know has a rack in it and also was fabricated to fit. It looks like the spindle are stock but that is it. I am not faliliar with what kind of parts where used or what brand. I am trying to get some insite on what i could do to make this thing driveable and maybe an opinion on if should start on the front end from the begining or if there someone or place that can make me what I need to make this thing right thanks for the ear.

I had another V8 car but I put the Ford motor in it and was able to use the stock suspension with a little extra modifications to streathen it i could not do the same with this one

Some pictures would really help us with visualizing this problem.

You posted this thread twice, I moved the duplicate to the dump.

Later, mikey
my signature lines...not really directed at anyone in particular..

BE different....ACT normal.

No one is completely useless..They can always be used as a bad example
