My only concern would be with the half shafts/CV joints. Are they different between the two cars? Are the sedan's also a bit longer? Most CV joints have quite a bit articulation and "stretching" possiblity, bit I wonder if, long term, there are wear problems? I suppose a part # check would be the easiest way to find out.
Hmm, and I know someone local who just installed the aluminum control arms on his sedan. If he doesn't want his stockers it might be a cheap way for me to get more negative camber up front.

I agree with your concerns about the half shaft cv joint length. I'll have to look into that.
