Again, I'm sure the fit and finish of Heidt's is great. He sells a bunch. My reservation comes in the several photos I have seen of fatigue cracks in his X-member in applications using strut rod eliminators leading to catastrophic failure. I have never heard of or seen a failed stocker so that is the way I go. If you decide to go with the Heidt's please use the strut rods or, if you must go with eliminators, weld in a filler plate @ each lower A-arm as I have shown before.
