rod end setup for links

Just curious on what you guys with link suspensions, 3 or 4, are using for rod ends?
As of right now Im thinking of using a threaded johnny joint at both ends of my links, one RH thread and the other LH thread and using the jam nuts to hold it all in place. I'll probably mark all parts of my links with a scribe or something as an easy way to check nothings become loose after driving.
My reasoning behind this is i can adjust the length of the lower links to get my front end parallel to the rear, and adjust the upper to set pinion angle and castor.
Think of a turnbuckle that you use to hold a camper in a truck. I could just loosen the jam nuts and spin my links for adjusting.
What do you think? Any input would be great.
