thanks ,    not  a ta...............question..i have seen/photos of this?    

Is this ^^^the same kind and year of car? The Steering looks different. Different Pitman, idler, etc. and is farther away from the cross member. If the car is similar is there a chance that swapping to the steering rack used in these pics would give you the clearance you need?
