Would it be a good idea to drill out the steel sleeves (in a IMCA hobby) in the left rear trailing arm and the top traling arms so the rear end would pull a little under power just bolt it right through the rubber and no steel sleeve?
Hey it may be a blond thing but you dont know if you dont ask lol

Are you talking about put slack in them. this would be a bad idea it would give you inconsistant handling, if you could get a softer bushing then that may help. but leaving slack in them will just make the car inconsistant. also torque links usually get multiple inches of travel not just a little bit like drilling out the bushing would.

If you could get it to be consistant then the little movement would also not make a noticable difference if it was to work to give you rear steer.

softening up the connections on the right side (not the left) will tend to give you right rear lead on throttle and trail on brake (looser in, tighter off).
