Ryan,
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.
