Swapping lift from one rig to another...
Posted 30 July 2004 - 02:51 PM
Everything should be easy to swap... brakes, rack, bumper, interior etc... but the one thing Im worried about is the Lift Kit. I dont have any worries about removing it, but its the re-installation into the Hatchback that im concerned with. Im wondering if the bolts that I got from PK would be good to be used twice?
Also, while I'm at it, im thinking of doing some work with the rear suspension. I dont care much for the horseshoe shock extension, and would like to do something similar to SubaruBrat's rear shock idea, or maybe go with a EA82 rear setup.

You can go with a longer shock without the horseshoe. Check a KYB application chart and just get a 2-3 inch longer-than-stock version with the same mount.

no issues at all.....
I am not using the rear horseshoe piece. I have Rancho RS5241's installed. I need to find my spreadsheet, but I believe they allow for 1" more up and 1" more down travel, taking the 3: rear body lift into account....
I had to grind a bit on the upper mount, but works really well.....

Mick, can you get any pictures of the Rancho's you have installed?
