Default Landing gear weldment cracks from rough field ops

Hello out there. Just want to get some advice from anyone who has had to repair landing gear weldments from this common problem of Weldment cracks from landing on grass strips. I understand there is this reinforcement kit / heavier duty gear weldments from Vans. (WD-402-L&R, WD-403-L&R)
How big a job would this be?
Also thinking of converting to the long gear leg mount and legs while doing this...
