I take it the idea is to have smoother rod end bearings?

Yup, to allow for smoother steering feel that isn't as sloppy as the Haggard shit that was there.... Fun fact, those are fiero sway bar end links that I used way back in my initial baller Celica sway bar install.

I had an entire thread about it, I have changed some things such as the control arms but the overall setup is the same.

Nothing yet, I'm gonna wait till after I make my own exhaust and my brother is 3d printing me an air filter adapter and a steering wheel lmao. I'm also going to drill out my jet a tad too. I want to build it in increments just to see how everything effects it individually. I also want a flywheel and valve spring. The steering wheel took 2 days to print and still needs a little post processing with some sand paper. We are going to Tig up a hub for it and it should end up being pretty neat.

The gains will be minimal and seem like you wasted money unless you do it all at once. Especially if you gov removal, cam, and port a gx160 head. Incredible power difference. If you do it incrementally, I suggest logging 0-top speed times, or gear for an unacceptable top speed and see if you can ever hit it.

I really enjoy the tq I get with how it's geared now, 10 tooth clutch with 60 tooth sprocket, I'm heavy so I need any gearing advantage I can get.
