I bought a Triumph Spitfire rack on e-bay. This turned out to be a good choice as it was dead simple to shorten. I removed 6.25" from the right end of the rack and 3" from the housing. the housing is smaller in dia. which allows it to mount lower and further back.

The result of all this is that the tie rods are much straighter than with the Chevette rack. with it mounted lower it puts the outer tie rod ends at the height they need to be to correct bump steer. Ackermann looks great too.

today i found that the rack bushing wouldn't fit into the cut off end of the rack. i had to bore out the rack to fit the bushing.
