Rack and Pinion for Gen 1

Is there a common rack that can be adapted to work on the Gen 1 Camaros. Does anyone make a mounting bracket? Or have plans for a bracket?

Unisteer makes a conversion kit as well. I don't know which is better though.

All the rear mount setups for first gens are awfull from all my reading on them,if you dont mind cutting the front crossmember out Smith Racecraft makes a super nice piece that converts it to front steer which is way better in my opinion.

Steeroids makes a complete bolt in kit for 1st gens. I have one installed in my 67 coupe and it works perfect. The main bracket mount to the lower a arm bolts. install was super easy & worke with the factory column.
