All you would have to do is measure the length of the lateral links hole to hole, and subtract out some of the joint's length to get a DIY Lateral Link.
Yep I plan on doing this too. Just need to know the size of the bolt also so you can size up the heim ends correctly. I know jk96pgt said he was gonna get some measurement and also do a write up about them but haven't seen anything. I think I'll PM him about it sometime. Not too much in a hurry to get em yet.

Also to help you find the connectors look for: "connector rods/tube" or "swedged rods" if I remember correctly in correspondance with searching for heim joint ends. I had a hard time finding the the rods but an easy time finding some of the heim ends. Not sure if anyone has run into this as well.
