S-10 Steering Sustitutes

I Purchased A 33 4 Dr Ply Street Rod That Has An S-10 Front End Grafted Onto 2x4 Frame Rails. I Want To Lighten The Front Without Sacrificing Any Safety. Can I Swap A Vega Steering Box For The Stock S-10, Or Has Anyone Gone Rack & Pinion? Looks Like It Would Be Difficult To Get Steering Shaft To The Rack. I Have Smoothed The Graft Both Front & Rear, So I Would Rather Keep It On At This Point. It Is Sbc Right Now But Plans Are For Blown Bbc In A Year Or Two. Will Need To Lighten As Much A Possible. Original Owner Backed Off Sway Bar To Top Of Threads, Do I Even Need It & All That Weight At This Point. Car Rides Decent And Doesn't Lean In Turns Or Wind. Appreciate Any And All Suggestions, Etc.
