3/4 4x4 Cross over steering

Has anyone made the steering conversion with the new passenger side steering arm and custom drag link. Im looking at doing it and have found a couple sites to get the parts but just wondered if anyone has already done it. If anyone could give me some pointers or at least some mistakes you might have learned I'd appreciate it.

I have a 78 3/4ton 4x4 with bumb steer like most lifted trucks and so I want to install the cross over steering to help correct it.
Who would you recommend for a manufacturer of the steering arm and draglink? Also does anyone know of a good machine shop in Anchorage who can drill the correct holes for the steering arm?
