I mean highsteer arms are readily available for the early 'flat top' Dana 60's, which is a good thing. You probably know this, the later ball joint Dana 60's are non-flat top, you have to machine the knuckle to get a highsteer set up on a van, machine the forging to a flat top , key it into the arm, drill and tap holes (or have it done). Then start building the tie rod and drag link. At least, that's what I wound up doing with mine. And you still have the BS ball joints and unit bearings. I like the direction you took.
I see your heims and steering damper in double shear, doubler plates, beautiful TIG welds, your drag link is horizontal, time consuming high-end race stuff. You must build serious offroad cars or something, that fab work is professional grade.
