I have full kits painted and waiting to bolt onto your car. I would love to send you more info on them. :grin: Send me a PM



Unfortunately, I do not feel inclined to give away my hard work and research in measuring and designing a kit. I believe most other builders of kits here would feel the same.

If you wanna build a kit, do it. But if you have the skills and equipment to build a kit, you probably don't need someone to tell you what to make.

If you want someone to hold your hand and tell you what to build and how to build it.............you should just buy a dang kit cause it will be alot easier in the end.

If u search it hard enough I think you can find the numbers.

I know the ea82 specs are up somewhere, but saying that, I found a lift to buy anyway.

so ,. let me get this straight.you don't want to help someone because it could interfere with your business.thats a bit backwards.....

if it were me , i think i woulda said.."sure i can help ya out with measurements and stuff,and then when and if they got in over there head and understood the work involved doing it themselves....would have re-approached them and said, or i could build ya one.

but not," im not gonna kick down info cause i worked hard for it."and that is probably true,but it gives you no right for bashin someone that is tryin to do it himself, that just needs a little help.i mean really, he asked for blueprints..........

granted , he may not know what he is doing.but it is not your ************in place to talk him out of it.....its no ones.and you should only speak for yourself.you don't ************in know what the other builders would say,did you have a secret lift builders meeting somewhere that we all didna hear about?no ,you didn't.so , leave them out of this.

theres only room enough for one wongleflute around here.and thats me (actually its not me, but you get the point).so piss off.:):rolleyes:





now, back to the subject.there are plenty of places on this website that there is information to be had.i would suggest looking at the FAQ at the top of the page.you first have to evaluate what you are going to be doing wth your car.....and go from there...

No actually, it is a legitimate business model. And if you think I don't help people you haven't read this board enough.

if it were me , i think i woulda said.."sure i can help ya out with measurements and stuff,and then when and if they got in over there head and understood the work involved doing it themselves....would have re-approached them and said, or i could build ya one.



Thing is, taking the measurements and planning the kit IS THE BULK OF THE WORK. the rest is simple drilling and welding.

You aren't me and nothing I said prevents you from saying what you think. I'll say what I feel.

but not," im not gonna kick down info cause i worked hard for it."and that is probably true,but it gives you no right for bashin someone that is tryin to do it himself, that just needs a little help.i mean really, he asked for blueprints..........


Yeah, you can't get blueprints for a leaf blower hovercraft in the back of Boys Life without paying for it. That's my point, he didn't want just a few pointers or a general question......he asked for Frickin blueprints...c'mon what do I just have hours to spend drawing it all up in CAD just for fun? Did I cut up a whole car for jigs just to have something to do? no. I encourage people to do things for themselves......but when they ask me to do it for them I get paid.....that is just how it is.

but it is not your ************in place to talk him out of it.....its no ones.and you should only speak for yourself.you don't ************in know what the other builders would say,did you have a secret lift builders meeting somewhere that we all didna hear about?no ,you didn't.so , leave them out of this.


I'm not trying to talk him out of it at all. I just think he's not "doing it himself" if he bases the whole thing off someone elses work.

I also have candid spoken with some other lift builders. They are very nice guys. Helpful, they are......but I am pretty sure they want to get paid for there work too, and aren't going to just give away blueprints and dimesions and advice all day long. As far as I know, none of them have posted "blueprints" of their kits of any kind. Let alone the fact that only a few builders even make EJ kits. The 2 others I know of (AA in US and Scorpion in Aus) DEFINATELY would not even think of GIVING away blueprints. Call me a wongleflute all you want.

now, back to the subject.there are plenty of places on this website that there is information to be had.i would suggest looking at the FAQ at the top of the page.you first have to evaluate what you are going to be doing wth your car.....and go from there...

There are not "plenty of places" for Legacy lift kits blueprint out there. If there where, he wouldn't hav e made this post. Like I said.....I had to cut up a whole car as a jig to make my first kit.

I've made a few lifts and I think its great to make sure everyone has the info to do it, since there are only about 2% of the people here on the board that will really do it anyways. I have whored out the 2" lift to make it known that anyone, ANYONE can make them, rather than someone withholding all the ways of making it, let it be known. It makes you look like a very greedy person for what you have wrote, But I guess some people are like that.................... Brian, Me, and Will are the kind of people that will Help and not look to make money off of our hobby.

Not only that the guy only has 5 post, That was a nice welcome there.

When I made that lift (pictured above) all I really wanted to know was a proper offset to keep the camber relatively in line.

Was like pulling teeth.

Not sure what you need for an EJ but I would suggest cruising the Aussie forums,the info's there you'll just gotta look for it.

Welcome aboard anyway.

you can wax poetic all you want.i never met a machinist that did not want to work off of plans.
and no harm in asking if someone else has some.
oh, and good luck with your business model........
