The plan is:

- 86 turbo wagon power plant
- front custom nice ;) travel McPherson struts/multi link suspension
- rear swing axle made from original axle, maybe vw style ;)

Any tips ?!

Yep , Start with something else. After all the money you spend trying to make it work. It still won't. Unless you have a fab shop, or tons of cash that is.

Expensive, but doable. I built a full tube frame and am running the suspension/ drive train off that, allows for mounting of aftermarket parts much easier. Buggest expenses are the suspension itself, and labor.
