I have a 1992 Brat with bent front suspension and I have a ea81 wagon doner car for it. I was just wondering if the controll arm and radius rod where the same in both cars.

Cheers again

Theres 2 bolts on the control arm that hook to the swaybar. On an auto they bolt in a slightly different spot than the manual trans version.
The radius rod blocks are also different as they hook to the transmission crossmembers differently.
