Steering

I would like to put rack & pinion steering on my 55 ford pickup.
Is there an easy way to build a frame x-member to mount it on.
Any suggestions??

If my memory serves me, you have, if the truck is stock, a straight axle or twin I-beam front suspension. In either case, a rack and pinion steering would be unsuited for your application.

RFB is right. A R&P system is set-up based on the relation of the pivots on the rack and on the control arms of an independant suspension system. I really don't see how you could get it set-up without a real problem with "bump steer".
