swap EA82 rear crossmember into brat?

I've also been interested in rear coilovers but I understand that (especially in a brat) they can be a bit much when coupled with the torsion bars.
To deal with the rear coilovers, I'm interested in:
removing the torsion bars - are they necessary if coilovers are installed?
swapping in an EA82 rear crossmember - I'm sure it would have to be narrowed; would it then be a matter of putting EA81 brackets on it?

So, I wonder if one could carefully cut the mount points off from the EA-82 suspension, then center the unit under the car, and re-weld the mout points where they need to be. This would give you a slightly wider track on the rear which would be a good thing on a lifted vehicle.
Am I way out in left field on this????
