Lower control arms for 15" conversion

Does anyone have pictures of the stock lower control arms cut and welded to clear 15" wheels? And do any aftermarket lca that work with a 15" wheel still use the stock strut or do you have to convert to coilovers?

I know what is needed for the bmr kit. Im trying to avoid paying $3500 though. The carlyle kit is less than half that
