he isnt trussing it for strength.... look at the driverside axle tube, and let me know where you will mount the links??? or right on the cast? haha

Yeah, I guess this it true... You can weld to cast to mount the upper on the drivers side, but some people frown on it. When I do three link stuff I usually just put the upper on a tower on the passenger side. It works just fine if you have room.
