Are the front rotors on an EA82 larger than on a vented EA81? If they are, would the larger caliper and rotor bolt onto the EA81 hub?

Second, could someone find the specs for 2WD EA81 front springs and shocks as well as the same info for EA82 front springs if they are interchangeable?

Now that I think about it, EA82 springs probably aren't interchangeable with EA81s. Different strut tops.

Lets make it four in a row! I actually recently installed RX front springs onto EA81 4WD struts using the EA81 strut top. Works fine but is stiff and underdamped. Still wondering about the brakes though.

Could EA82 front brakes be modified to fit an EA81?

Just do it and find out:-p Since you've been asking the same question for 4 years, its time to get some junk parts and start checking to see if it'll work. If not, then oh well, just throw the junk parts away but if they do....
get some new stuff and bolt er up!:banana:
