Default Flipped Rear Bottom Link?

Looking at the rear suspension on a my96 it looks as if the lower links could be unbolted and rotated 180* which would bring the sway bar link to the top.
It appears to me that you could then use conventional performance endlinks or double heim joints. Has anybody done this? The plastic dog bones offend me and I want some degree of adjustability on the stock bar.

Should be able to....but you might have to also swap L-R sides to keep the alignment of the flange in check. Also, check the travel of the swaybar blade at full compression. You don't want it to jam up into the trunk floor.
