Depends how much more clearance you need.
Run UC torana front end alignment specs with UC steering arms and the geometry will be ok.

Would be good to borrow a set rather than buy incase they don't fit either.
People want good money for UC steering arms these days. If you were in Bris I could bring some over for you to try.

The tie rod end looks to be sitting a bit higher than normal in the steering arm, it could just be the split rubber boot or the angle that makes it look odd.

 
It may be worth trying a different tie rod end.

switched the slides left to right and right to left on the caliper fixed the clearance issue, somone must have pulled them of and reinstalled them around the wrong way ,

so pays to check things out ..

Got caught many years ago trying to bleed calipers on a HR front end. They had been swapped side to side and the bleed nipples were at the bottom of the chambers. No way to get the air out. Took to Power Brakes SA and they worked it out straight away of course.
