So your sagging in the front? If you looking to fix that I prolly would just replace the struts if they haven't been done yet.

Haven't ever had to lift just the front. All it would do is lift the body off the subframe. I do believe the auto have an Exstra 4 bolts on the rear of the tranny. Turn around time is about a week-2 weeks depending on work load.
 

Struts new, the rear torsion is likely cranked (not by me) I like the height in the rear just wondered if only lifting the sub frame in the front would give a nice rugged level look, perhaps im being cheap too. The only thing that has stopped me in the past is the steering extension, and I believe there is a recipe for the front strut mounts to be 17 degrees offset or something, Now I just dont have time to mess around so if I do go lifted i better just have a kit.

It's common on the ea81's to lift the front more than the rear due to the rake they have. I had a 2" front lift on my brat with just the torsion bar cranked in the rear. It sat nice with that.
