Hi Guys,
What ive got is an ea82 wagon with a 4" lift. Ive installed an ej 5 speed using xt6 f & r crossmembers with an ej center section. 4" blocks arent correct at all points as my tail shaft points slightly downwards with the tranny resting on the engine cross member and will only get worse once the engines installed. I could figure this out with the engine in but im probably a month or two away from that so my question is if anyone knows the math from engine crossmember to rear trans crossmember with this setup?
Thanks

With them all mounted to the body, it's all straight. I can't think of any reason why even blocks at all 3 crossmembers wouldn't work out just fine.

what 4" lift are you running? are they 4" blocks all around? Most aren't

I have a Boss kit, 4" front strut tops, engine x member, radius rod mounts, center bearing, rear subframe and rear strut tops, well I had 6" rear strut brackets but bought your 4" due to my running hybrid axles. I assumed the trans x members would be the same. The wagon was a 4eat and had only the rear x member, but going ej on the trans and with the lift kit supplied my front x member lands on a 4" lift block. I should mention this is my first lift and ej conversion so im learning as I go, and I made 4" blocks for the rear trans x member but im sure the angles would eat u joints.
