You can extend the control arms and swap Gen2 suspension bits, or you can adapt the gen 2 crossmember and get full gen 2 suspension.With the Gen 2 crossmember a EJ22 and 5 speed DR are possible,with Gen1 crossmember the steering shafts tries to occupy the same space as the axle cups.

really? I'll take it if you want to give it away...

I may have to wait a bit before i let the carb go. My brother in law came across an 81 brat that has been taken apart an i don't know if i need it or not at this point.

Funny thing is he hates 4wd but loves brats. i am going to swap out the rear swing arms for the ones that came off my wagon and give it a 5 speed 2wd drive train. this will be an interesting build as it goes against my every fiber to make a 4wd 2wd. but if thats what he wants i will gladly accept the challenge.

I will post pics as soon as we go pick it up.
