So the reduction of steering radius is something that I personally don't approve of with a rack conversion, and that happens oftentimes due to the steering arm length on the spindles. More often than not, a box setup will have more travel than a rack, so you end up with this problem. To fix it, you need a shorter arm, and then you fall right back into dealing with bump steer issues. If you are lucky, you can find a rack with the proper travel that is also the right width. There are also ways to modify spindles, but each thing you do opens a new can of worms
And technically speaking, "no bump steer" doesn't mean that it simply doesn't toe out during travel, but is actually minimized as close to zero change as possible at all possible points of travel. This is where the difference comes from taking the time to work everything out or not. Sometimes it's not possible, but you would have to do so much jigging, rejigging and plotting and charting in real time to find this out.
I'll have to look at the your pictures tomorrow maybe, this week is pretty hectic, but as far as the wheelchair joke, you have to admit it was funny, and had no ill intentions
Again I agree that you should think twice if a car has a certain value or collectibility to it, before doing extreme things to them, but at the same time, if you own it, it's your own choice to do what you want. And I honestly feel that what I'm doing is for the better, given the resources and circumstances at hand. I'm sure anyone here would love 300hp, 25mpg and zero maintenance in a 108
