I know it has been 15 years, but did you ever buy them and install? I am looking at a set of them currently and from what I can tell, they should fit with the correct brackets. I was hoping to get confirmation though.
This is true and I may end up going that route. I can join metal together, but welding is not my strong suit. I guess this is a reason to practice. Sometimes though, it is worth the time to buy a premade part if it isn't too expensive.
