I'm sure you already know that the DW specs for the 4 Bar are lowers at 12.5" and uppers at 14.5". If you don't have room to fit these length bars, you may need to move your rearend back (lengthen the wheelbase) to accomodate the links. I would only move the rearend back just as much as you need to accomplish this. Also, when moving the rearend, you may need to relocate the frame mounts for your shock and eliminator. Make sure they're not running at too much of an angle.

I have recently done this on a GRT. My upper bar is 17 and my lower bar is 14.75. This gives you a motion ratio similar to the Dirtworks.
I basically cut the back wall of the tub out and came into the cockpit about 3 inches with the mount for the upper link.

In addition I moved my seat forward, cut down the steering column, and changed to a flat sprint car style steering wheel.
