Triple chainring, 11-36 cog, sti shifter

I am building up a touring bike and would like to use a 48-36-26 triple ring crankset and an 11-36 rear cassette. The issue is that I find I really like integrated shifters.and I cannot find a combination of long cage rear derailleur to handle the large range of gear rations that will work with the pull ratio of the STI shifters I have been finding (looking at shimano 105 5703). Can anyone suggest a combo that works? I would like to avoid devices that modify the pull ratio,like tanpans, because it seems like too much of a kludge on a touring bike.

How many speeds (cogs at the back) ? Without that info, no one can answer your question.

Okay, I looked up the 5703; says ten speed.

This will work well for you: https://www.amazon.com/SHIMANO-Deore.../dp/B002PTQFXA

RD only: Note 10 speed and less road works with 9 speed mountain. 10 speed road does not work with 10 speed mountain.

For a touring bike I would consider something like the Gevenalle brake-shifter system. Simple and rugged with no non-serviceable "clockwork" inside. https://www.gevenalle.com/shifters/

As already mentioned 10 speed brifters with 9 speed mountain rear derailleur.

While only 8 speed brifters, my wife is running 12-34 with a triple crankset and a 9 speed XT rear derailleur. She is running a Tiagra 4603 front derailleur with the triple (46t large chainring).

- Brifters: Ultegra 10s triple.
- Crankset: 9s XT - originally 44/32/22 with rings swapped to 48/36/22.
- FD: IRC Alpina-D (but I've read a Tiagra will also work)
- Cassette: 10s 11-36.
- RD: 9s XT Shadow.

I have this same combination on 2 different bikes.
