Post manual steering conversion

I need a recommendation on how to convert a 73 El Camino to manual steering using factory parts. What parts would interchange?

I don't know why you couldn't, like OldBuz said, go to the boneyard and pull the parts you need off of a manual steering 73-77 GM A-Body. All the 73-77 A-Body's should be the same and fit in your Elky.

Question

first of all, why do you want manual steering? if you are just doing it because you want it, take parts off of an a body and fix it right up. but... if your'e changing it because it steers like a drunken buffalo, you need to look at your tie rod ends, ball joints, and suspension bushings. if it already was manual, and is fine, discard this message.
