Yeah, I missed the 77 part! Steering arms to front, use 80s T-bird rack (or Mustang, or Aerostar van), if steering arms to the rear use an 80s Taurus rack. One thing to note: steering arm length. From center of ball joint to center of tie rod end is only 5" for the R&P. Regualr steering box arms may be as long as 7", which will greatly reduce the turning sicrcle. You may have to cut and weld or bend your arms if they are cast in unison with the spindles. I'm making tubular arms for my car, but the arms bolt off.
