If you installed disc brakes that move everything out board a quarter inch it just might. Split the difference so that one side isn't taking up all of the slack.

This is why I recommend buying the complete front end combined with disc brake kit with brand new everything from ball joints to center link. Some kits even include coil springs or dropped spindles but what ever it includes all of the parts fit together and when you are done you can set the odometer back at zero as far as wear is concerned

I just had my steering column rod out to get my upper control arm off on my 64... At the upper joint the rod inserts appx. 1". Stock power steering.

You may need a different U joint Flaming River has on that works pretty good.
