getting ready to run my steering shaft

I have done this a few times but been awhile. I have a Mustang II front with manual rack. I had a set of block hugger headers but sold them and trying to find out which rams horn exhaust manifold will give me more clearance. Looking at the tru ram from speedway. I hope I can get away with two joints so I won't have to put a support bearing in the center..
I have installed my seat so I can get an idea of the column placement and which column drop I need. Hope I can come out of the floor on an angle that is not too radical. I'm working on a 35 Chevy Outlaw sedan with 350/700r4.
Any words of wisdom and or pics will be greatly appreciated.
By the way... I bought a Teas Design seat and it is a piece of art....NICE!

I have a '33 ford sedan with an SBC, block huggers, Omni rack (behind the crossmember), and Ididit column. I had to run a support bearing. Maybe you have more room, or won't need the bearing with the rack in front of the crossmember.
