lifting 1980 brat
Posted 09 March 2004 - 05:12 PM
what i was thinking was a EA81 rearend with suspension, front crossmember off a EA81 car. put in a EA82 hitachi powered engine, with a d/r 5sp tranny.
would this work, plus put a 3inch lift on it with some 27's.
wouldn't that cover all the problem area's that i would have over lifting the stock 80' brat?

if building a lift, yo can use the lift to adapt the width difference
same for lifting the back, the lift will have to be designed to fit the body on one side, and the ea81 suspensipon on the other ide
MAY I SUGGEST using an ea82 rear suspension, and modding the ea81 front crossmember to use ea82 lower control arms, inner/outer tierod(or custom lengthen ea81's inners) so with that setup, you can use the bigger ea82 brakes, have more travel, and get some positive camber. also, you will be able to use ea82 axles, since they are more readily common for replacement, and with the option of using a82 axles, you can use an full time transmission with 25 spline axles
