deff, fabrication on making control arms and front strut stop mounting...

I have yet to actually get it up in the air and see where the XT6 things will tie in to the frame. I can tell you that the XT6 stuff is Way wider. I'm guessing it will widen the track of the brat by 4 inches or so. The outer edge of the wheels (impreza offset) will be out about 2 inches from the current location. Good thing I bought those fender flares).
I will call it totally possible but I doubt anything will be "bolt on", with the exception of using the 79's mustache bar, the diff will bolt up to that.
Lots of fabrication, such as building a strut perch for the rear coilovers.
