Default 72 f250 front axle swap

Was looking for some help on my truck. I have a 72 ford f250 It came with the closed knuckle front axle. After i bought it the king pin bearing went out on driver side and tire started to lean in so i talked with a mechanic and told me to switch it to an open knuckle from a 76 to 79 f250 so i did but the problem i am running into is the tie rod ends that go from the gear box to the knuckle. I know it probably has been done but if anyone has any info or advise it would be much appreciated. Also at a toss up to build my own tie rods with hym joints and a piece of DOM tubing
