So I pulled my gen 1 brat project into the garage to work on swapping in EA81 suspension front and rear as well as lifting it,However, due to the nature of project vehicles the bed is full of parts and their is no engine so it sits kinda funky. So I am looking for the rear unloaded ride height of a gen 1 brat. Preferably one thats stock with a rollbar.A good measurement might be from the divit in the axle to the top of the wheel arch,or from the jacking point to the ground on a level surface,etc.

thanks in advance.

Sweet thanks! Now to support the rear at 29" and pull the suspension and work on mocking up where the Ea81 rear suspension should go.

Sorry, I've been away from the computer the last day or so. I would go with the measurements from rustrybrat as I just noticed my rear shocks are possibly shot.
