The only hard part of lifting a gen 1 Brat or wagon is the fact the torsion bars are funky. The angles where the torsion bars connect to the body in the rear are very hard to figure out but if you can figure it out, the rest is basically like lifting an EA81 car...

Or... you can do what lumpycam did and adapt EA82 running gear under the car. Just fab it / integrate it into the lift kit. Much simpler suspension to work with.
