Pretty easy to make that out of tubing, one inside the other, drill holes for adjustment and weld tabs for mounting.

With where the lower link mount ended up, it looks like pulling the tcase will be a pita

At least you're already mentally preparing yourself for that. Every build seems to have one of those features, you just got yours out of the way early.

Um....it's a 205...I don't care if you mounted it with a hoist built into the chassis, pulling it would still be a PITA.

Updated from measurements



I'll put a corrected version up and a little different version to get the roll axis angle down.

Take a peek, what say you suspension peoples? Advantage of roll axis angle make enough of a difference to move the lowers out and loose 4 deg or so?
Bringing the rear lowers at the axle up to 19in drops the AS down to 60% but moves the IC out to about the front axle. I don't claim to be an expert, I just plug numbers.....
