I'm liking what I see on the McMaster-Carr link.
The ones with the Neoprene seals don't have a Load cap. rating, and they pivot 35°.
The ones with the Rubber seals have a rating, and pivot to 34°.
I think the thing to do would be to push out or drill out the ball stud from the factory lever arms, drill them out and weld in a regular M8-1.25 nut. Clearance is somewhat tight, so I don't think a coupling nut is a good choice. A jam nut on the threaded male stud, and you should be good. Instead of a jam nut, a thin spring type lock washer and thread locker would be less bulky. Then trim the male stud of excess length as necessary.
I think either one would work, as the rating should be sufficient for a hand operated lever, one that probably isn't used every day. The Neoprene Seal equipped pieces are plated steel, so I think they may be stronger, whether they are rated to not. The Original MB pieces look to be zinc, and they do not look to be built for high strength, so I think the McMaster-Carr ball joint linkages would be an upgrade. Price-wise, the Rubber Seal versions are about twice as much, so maybe they are the way to go, thinking you are paying more to get more ?
One consideration would be clearance - but I think the best way to pin that down is to buy a couple and fiddle around with them. They look like they would fit, but I still have to measure the threaded depth on the OEM pieces, and so on.
Maybe today I can play around with my OEM pieces and try to come up with a number for what their pivot range is.
