straight axle power steering box

I have a straight axle under my pickup and i am trying to make it power steering.

the steering arm on the original one whet front to back and was mounted on the outside of the frame.

The problem i am having is that the arm on most boxes went from left to right

Can any of you think of a vehicle that had a power steering that would work for me?

maybe even a 4 wheel drive

I would like to stay away from power assist cylinders and rack and pinion

Chevy Truck 4x4 1973-87, arm runs forward and backward, runs a link outside the frame. from box's arm to top of spindle/steering arm. Box is in front of axle, don't know if its forward and back will equal the correct left/right for you but it is one place to look.
