Default Remove the existing bell crank brakes

The Garmin Sept. 2006 Rv-8 installation information specifically states "remove the existing pitch bell crank brackets and replace with servo mounting brackets (items 4 and 9)" however the pictures from most builders have not done so, has this been the general approach? I am ready to place my adjacent to that provided by my quick build and would love to hear the groups' thoughts.

I think the rv8 kit changed over the years. Early builders fabricated bellcrank angles and the new kit has the angle incorporated in the underlying part. So it is easier to add the garmin angle than cut off the bellcrank angle.
