tie rod/drag link flip?

I purchased new rims that have less back spacing and I have read somewhere that you can put the tie rod and drag link on top of the knuckles instead of on the under side to move them up farther away from the ground. But as I look it appears that if I flip the drag link the other way the bend will face the wrong way wont work. I believe that someone did this on mall crawling but I cant find it. If not where can I find the tie rod end link that is the opposite way?

i know IRO makes their own stronger and over the knuckle (OTK) tie rod, but is like twice the cost of a JKS tie rod. is anyone even running IRO's OTK tie rod? just wondering how much more clearance it gives.

I plan on ordering it here in the next couple months. I have had a couple different threads about it and the heim joints it uses.
