A stock steering box will give you the best results with the type 1 front end. the reason for that is that the tie rods are much longer than they would be with a rack & pinion steering. There is a conflicting arc between the control arms and the tie rod pivot which does create bumpsteer. the shorter the tie rod, the more conflict there is.
Give me something to cut with, I'm going to build a Volksrod.
