Rear steer ?

If you have them mounted in the stock direction to have correct geometry you need to have a rear steer rack. There is a WIKI here on HR using a caviiar rack on older GM suspensions but I think it might not be strong enough for your weight of car.I have pieces of Jaguar f 40 front IFS to fab for my roadster and Caviliar racks.
The jags were bigger an bulkier. time to walk through the wrecking yard, a lot of things to consider. Pivot locations, overall width and interchange of tie rod ends, mounting etc. There are a couple of web forums on 5o's fords that might have more info , google , search, etc.
