    I've been thinking the same thing. I already have the crossover done and the drivers side arm is installed too. After I do the gears I might finish it up.

    I was bending passenger side drag link ends on the tierod, I now run tie-rod ends on the tierod. If your rig is more of a daily driver you really won't get much of an advantage.
