Actually I want to know how to determine steering arm angle (relative to upright) if I know the inside and outside steer angles for 100% Ackerman

If you don't understand how reading a suspension dynamics text will help you solve this problem, you have not done enough research into steering systems to be able to effectively design one. 

I suggest starting with "Racecar Vehicle Dynamics"
