Why not leave that part stock? Just change rod ends to match your existing pitman arm.

I came into a partly done project. They have the fullsize gearbox mounted on the outside of the frame. Column rod would run at an angle. Might be better of to go back to stock gearbox. Was looking for ideas. Thanks

Best thing to do would be to use some universal steering joints, one at the box and one at the top of the shaft. Use a new double D shaft as well. I did a steering conversion in my 57 Chev pickup and used Borgeson joints (borgeson.com)and a new shaft. shaft can be up to a 30 degree angle with no problems.
I used polished stainless but they sell steel as well...EXCELLENT construction and are all needle bearings, splined, smooth or double D.

Good luck
