Power rack in second gen Camaro ?

I am in the process of installing a power Rack from a 95 Camaro into a 77 RS Camaro subframe . Has anyone out there done this , and if so how did you make up the outer tie rod ends ? I have made the mounting points and notched the drivers side cross member to allow clearance for the steering input . The problem is matching the metric 14 mm x 1.5 male thread to the 11/16 thread on the original tie rod ends. I have made another mod of note : I have installed spindles from a 84 Fleetwood Brouham . I did this to get 12 inch rotors and the 5 on 5 truck bolt pattern . They match perfectly and beleive it or not are 1/8 in narrower and the steering arm is shorter by the same . I am installing this set up in a 66 C10 short box fleet side . The power will come from a 87 TPI with a 700R4 . I will keep the stock 12 bolt rear with 3.73 gears . I am open to any ideas out there . Thanks Mike

It's been a day and nobody has an answer ?

I have looked at first gen power racks , rear steer , and dont know if the tie rod ends are the same taper as second gen Camaros . I also can't find anything telling me what the thread is on the inner tie rod end of that power rack. I am also considering Hiem ends but don't know a thing about them , or where to get them with internal metric threads . Any one out there know ? Thanks Mike
