I think the the idea is great.I`m currently doing this to my 57 210.I feel it`s better to do this with these cars instead of slammin them to the ground or build the same tubbed strret rod that everybody else has done.I`m running a 48 ford f-100 axl and used my stock steering box.I got a pitman arm from a guy at a swap meet that said he bought from Speedway.From the pitman I made a cross over steering set up made of a stock style ford tie-rod and a tapered type.I made a adjusting bar bar out of heavy pipe and welded a nut to each end that fit that tie-rod.Really seems to work great.This made it easy to make brackets for a steering stabalizer for normal driving.
