I was trying to get away from the straight axle mainly because I use this vehicle for a daily driver. However, its probably not worth the time or money to convert.

"Trying to get away from the straight axle"?

So you are doing an IFS conversion? I don't see how a rack and pinion would benefit you in any way whatsoever.

it's not the solid axle making it ride bad.

good springs and good, new, shocks are where you should be heading.

I'm just going to go slit my wrists now. And yes, I know its down the block, not across the street.

It's always darkest before dawn... so if your going to steal your neighbors newspaper, that is the time to do so.
