If using T-bird spindles, use the T-bird rack. It will mate to the GM column since both use 3/4" double D shafts. You might have to take a GM and Ford shaft, pull them apart at the slip joint, and mate them (I did that). The T-bird rack will use a GM PS pump (or Ford). The rack should mount along the plane between the inner pivots of the lower arms to prevent bump steer, and must mount in front of the crossmember. If you need to mount behind the crossmember reverse your spindles (left to right) and use a Taurus rack.
