Ah....you were the guy lookin' for this info.
Good, 'cause I lost the original post and didn't know who to contact.

Yeah...I don't like the Wheelrite design myself but I sorta got stuck with it 
the kit came on the car when I purchased it.

So I'm doing the best I can with it, 'cause I've used it before and found it 
pretty much
satisfactory for the type of drivin' I do.

For the stock daily driver driven reasonably,
even over rough surfaces (or on a relatively
smooth racetrack) it's OK, but otherwise
it imparts heavy loads (in front) to too small an area of the A-frame which can
lead to local pre-mature cracks in same.

The Frontline type kits are far better designed in this, and I'm sure other,
respects as well. Far more (and better)
"support" for sure and no doubt incorporating better "geometry" for
better handling, etc.
