3-point tractor links

3-point tractor hitch; top links category 1 or 2 for suspension links?

Has any tired this?
Its easier to get them where i'm at, and a bit cheaper than rock crawler parts online. $18-56 [sources vary] for a cat 2 top link with hemi joints, 1" pins, 1-1/8 threads, forged, adjustable 21-33".

A 3 point set up is used to haul/lift/pull plows, discus, shears ect.
fyi:
Category Tractor HP Top Link Pin Diameter
0 Up to 20 5/8 in
1 20 to 45-55 3/4 in
2 45-55 to 90-95 1 in
3 90-95 and up 1 1/8 in

Seen them used a Apple Valley Farms near New Auburn Wi.Guys had good luck but they wear faster than fancy ones.Might have to check on cost vs durability.Also wouldn't use them to keep a Rockwell with 56s under a 10 thousand pound brute with a kajilion horsepower.If ya know what I mean.
