It doesn't make a big difference from levers in good shape, and may not be legal in some classes.

I've seen pictures of them from a guy in our local club who did it. Basically he bolted a triangle plate to the bottom corner of the rear shelf with a bolt though it to mount the top of the shock to it. I wasn't too thrilled about the idea of all the shock stress ending up on body sheet metal. He said the only kink in the conversion is that he had to switch to earlier TR4 leaf springs that have a different arch than the later ones. Personally I'd stick with the levers.
