I'm sure with some geometry you could calculate how long the steering shaft needs to be. Use the shaft as the hypotenuse of the triangle, you then make one of the legs 3 inches longer, so the hypotenuse will change, but not by the same amount.
At 3 inches I dont see the need for connecting the lifting blocks. On the PK kit the rear mustache bar uses one big block for the 2 bolts to go through on each side. Ditto on the front cross member. A 3rd bolt is also introduced. For added strength I assume. I dont even want to try to figure out how to fab up the strut tops... I'm glad they came prewelded and marked for each side.

I'm curious about removing the torsion bars and then installing the EA82 coilovers in the back of a brat. what might be flawed about that idea? anyone?
that would give less push to the rear end and in effect it would feel like a stock EA82 setup... since the torsion bars AND coilovers are why it sits up so high and stiff if you swap the coilovers onto an EA81 car.

depending on how you make your mounts though, you may not need a 3" lift with the coil-overs.
I have my torsion bar adjusted in my 82, and it's a ton stiffer in the rear too...

i think i remember something about them being a pretty stiff ride.even with the torsion not even clocked.
would be better then the butt end of it bouncing all over the road like its a mexican jumping bean! You have to remember I know what a stiff ride is like in a Brat... I had the one with no suspension at all!
