Gen5 rear suspention link info needed

I'm tempted to find out gen5 rear suspension linkage geometry. Hope someone here in forum owning gen5 has shock out and would measure link plate and dogbone dimension. You could maybe get measurements by pressing a piece of carton against linkage bolts (with shock in place) and measure from dent traces.
I attached an image and need measurements A, B, C and D.

Having these measurements I could do some calculations comparing it to gen4 stock and aftermarket link. This could give us first clues if stock link is now optimal for track use, is it closer to gen4 aftermarket or gen4 stock (high ratio, not optimal for racing). And what Ohlins high speed valving to use. Did read here that someone already fitted Ohlins shock on Gen5 and guess shock length is same with gen4, then probably gen5 mounting points have not changed.
