    Since you have an 80's 10 bolt up front, you will need the other style knuckle to have the same tie-rod attachment, unless you found a flattop that has tierod entry from the bottom.
    1. You need to have that flatttop drilled and tapped for the steering arm to bolt to.
    2. crossover steering arm to bolt to that knuckle.
    3. dropped draglink and ends.
    4. Superlift ford pitman arm to connect ot your 2wd box.

    Some things to consider are new ball joints and new tierod ends while you are working this project. You need to give it a "tape measure" alignment while you are at it.
