If your tube is thick walled, 3 inch would be OK.BUT, you might run into clearance issues with the fuel tank.
Thats a pretty good design.

cheers

That would be a first gen Brumby I believe.

You could lift in a similar manner, but none of the dimensions are the same as an EA81/ 2nd gen. chassis

The torsions tube on the 1st gen is the hard part. It's mounted diagonally, so it's not just a simple rectangle block/drop. You have to make an angled piece with a large hole to access one of the bolt.

HighGuys Lifts makes an EA71 if your interested. PM me for info.

yea i was going to measure everything off my car, the torsions tube sounds a bit
hard but i think i should be able to do it. i will try to build it rather than buy one. and where would i get extended brake lines for the front.

thanks
