A Pinto or Mustang II rack won't adapt to a Maverick easily. If's not a simple bolt on and needs to be engineered properly so you don't end up cartwheeling off a bridge A rear steer rack off a Front wheel drive car is needed, but it must be the right length between the pivots and mount at the right location, steering pinion shaft angle can't be too extreme....etc...

try the rack from a tempo or topaz. they are about 2 inches narower than a taurus/sable rack and just might work.
