Beimg a "front steer" there's nothing I know of. I had one (72). You can add rack and pinion but thr rack needs to be like 6 to 7inches ahead of the main crossmember to avoid bump steer. You may also look for a rack that has a wider than normal spacing at the inner swivels allowing a longer tie rod end, thus closer to the crossmember and still no bump steer. Seems like late model T/A Z28 might be a good start.

Front steer

Seems to me that one of the fellows here did something like that using the chev cavalier unit..about an 89-90..took a bit of doing but it worked out OK..

Might try a search and see what you come up with..

No matter what unit you get, you are going to have to weld in brackets to mount it to.
