Just seems like from a pinion travel stand point you want them closer in length. Specially if your going to be pulling a lot of travel because the pinion will rotate a lot through out.
i dont know what to make of it but i plugged the numbers in, i still need my weight numbers though.

The upper links can be slightly longer or shorter than 0.7 (70 percent) of the lower links, but try not to pass 0.6 (60 percent) or 0.8 (80 percent).

adding bends to the link would add some serious stress concentration factors. You would have to really overbuild them to keep them from bending!
