changing radius rods

The 65 falcons have fixed radius rods. I'm thinking of changing them to adjustable rods so the early falcon can have more forward caster.

Any thoughs?

this is what I was thinking

the original rod has a positive stop on the rod itself, griding it off and threading down the rod like on the later x type falcons and using the sleave a la the later mods as well.


would it work?

The reason was to run more forward caster for a bit of off road racing.
