any idea where i can get some good kits or help with building a kit? I would like to go up 6 inches or however high I can before having to replace my brakel lines and whatnot. I would like to get all the needed parts together by the end of februaury. Where should I look?

Youre in the right place... USMB that is...

But do some searching... There is LOTS of info.

Scott In Bellingham AKA SJR sells lift kits... http://www.sjrlift.com/

Theres a few other ones, BeastIDrive makes them too I believe...

First off though, what 86 GL do you have? Brat? Sedan? Hatch? Wagon?

Theres an offroad section here and a members rides section that A LOT of members have posted lifted EA81s/EA82s in...

I have 4" kits available for EA82 cars, and I have a 6" ea81 kit waiting to be sold. I can also do 6" EA82 kits and 3" and 4" EA81 kits.

Personly I'd go with the beast I drive, ive never liked the way sjrs crossmember blocks are a "C" may work for light off roading but if you hit or jump high enough they are going to pinch.. They are really cool looking and are easy for fabricastion but not my cup of tee... Which is why I built my own. 2x3" 1/4" full length blocks, for my 4" lift.

Just my 2¢.

HighGuys also has a kit for your car.

Check out HighGuysLifts.com for pricing. It's a placeholder site, while the full site is being built, but there is a basic list of kits and pricing.

PM me for details.
