p/s

take a look at the bottom of your steering column, it goes directly into the steering box. you would have to cut that off and get a bearing for the bottom of it, for starters. then find a box that would work. if you wanted to use the stock steering arms then the box would have to go behind or in front of the wheels. I haven't looked at any kits, just something for you to ponder. I installed a tci mustangII front end in mine so I could have ifs and disc brakes ( as well as air bag suspension). I just figured i would probably get power steering, then later I would want to upgrade to disc brakes, by that time I might as well just pay once and get the thing the way I want it. it isn't that hard to install if you have lots of time. if you don't have a welder just hire somebody after you get it all ready. there is a tech article on installing the tci kit at the custom classic trucks site.
good luck.
