    Give someone here some dimensions, they can probably tell you how wide the rack spreader will need to be.

    doesn't look to need too much of a spreader, draw a line thru your inside upper and lower a-arm mount bolts with the rack centered, on that line is essentially where you want the tie rod/spreader connection bolt center at. right now you're inside the line. the issue then becomes at full bump or droop and full lock whether or not the end of the tie rod will hit one of the a-arm tubes.

    Not quite, you need to figure out how far past the king pin angle the steering arm is on the spindle and move you inner out from that plane to match.

    bdkw is absolutely correct on that, my apologies, forgot the "other side" of the equation.
