I guess that's not really an easy conversion without going to the POS design that Ford used for those cars. You have a limited amount of space, a 36 year old sheet metal frame that is a direct relative of a '60 - '73 Falcon/Pinto/Mustang/Fairlane and most of their derivatives and a coil over front suspension with intrusive shock towers that don't lend themselves to easy modifications.

Now with those negatives out of the way, take a look at this rack and pinion setup - which might just be the kind of thing you want. Recall that the Maverick is only a deglorified Mustang as far as underpinnings - http://www.fordmuscle.com/archives/2000/01/rack/ and http://www.totalcontrolproducts.com/rack.html

Then, look here http://mmb.maverick.to/showthread.php?t=19919

The prices might scare you though - I recall paying less then $100 dealer cost for my '68 Torino to make my ex happy.

I just did this in my '72 Mav. Bought the kit from RCM (pages 1 through 4) and it took me 15 hours to remove the old parts and weld in the suspension part of the kit. After that, there's all the odd jobs that stack up time-wise.
