Other things to consider with a conversion are that with the steering rack change, the pitman arm would now be on the opposite side, its possbile that the draglink could just be swopped over and the same with the tierod, but the trackbar on a RHD mounts on the pumpkin side on the axle and has a different shape to the LHD model. Because the draglink would connect to the left hand side's front wheel hub, you'll also be in for a hub change. Also, the arrangement of the alternator, powersteering pump and aircon compressor is different on a RHD model and it also takes a different radiator and hoses to the LHD one.
