XT6 parts on 85 GL 2dr wagon???
Posted 05 July 2012 - 11:22 PM
The ER27 is complete but I am not interested in the full drive train. Either keeping the FI or converting it to carburator, what would it take to bolt up to the existing 4MT?
Will the front seats bolt right in?
I know disks, calipers and knuckles are needed. Do I also need axles, control arms and struts to convert over to disk rear and 5 lug all around?
I know searching is my friend. I intend to find the answers myself. I only ask this way because I am trying to secure the parts should I decide to change my plans for the build.

But, 2-door and 4-speed. That means it's an EA81. That has come to be known as a hatch. The '85 Wagons were EA82s, and a very different platforms.
The ER27 is much longer, and will require much fabrication to fit. and will probably chew your 4 speed to bits. IMO, it's not worth doing if you don't put a 5-speed.
front 5-lug swap in an EA81 is very involved. Short story is, it'll require custom axles.
Front seats do not bolt quite right into an Ea82, I know that for sure. Done right will require some modification. I suspect EA81 would be similar.
