It will take the stress. Trouble is, current kits only offer a GM rack. A man has to have some self respect...

That's just weird. I think the kit-makers are conspiring to create brand mutants. I was just looking at http://www.progressiveautomotive.com/sweet.htm and it shows all their Corvette based suspension kits including a Cougar/T-bird rack. Sooner or later, there's bound to be a kit that uses a VW rack with a MII crossmember, mounts for a Chevy SBC hooked to a Mopar transmission and a Ford 9", all designed to upgrade a Toyota.

I have a TECH ARTICLE describing using a TAURUS rack conversion on an early MUSTANG. The conversion procedure is the same. I don't know if you want to go the fabrication route.
