New hatch owner, have a couple questions......
Posted 27 September 2003 - 10:56 AM
What about lifting a hatch? I see in pic. that it's been done, how would one go about doing it. Any detail's?
Also what about a bigger rim, I saw the info on the toyota rim, what about chevy rim's, they are 8-5.50", we are 4-140mm or 4-5.50", would the chevy rims bolt right up using only 4 of the holes?

As far as chevy rims, you need to knock out two opposing studs diagonally, and then drill four new ones to work with 6 lug. Or redrill the 6 lug if it's not going to be a looker, redrill it with a new 4x140mm pattern.

the 16 inch chevy rims can be drilled out, you will want to use the 21mm lug nut with m12 1.25 thread, and 60 deg. seat.
i used a set of truck rims and put 2o5/55 camaro tires on the rims, not much bigger around (made 3.90 drive like 3.70).
you will have to grind away at the middle hole to fit the subaru hub.
i have seen a set of 15's for a 6 lug, those would offer better selection for tires
you could send just the 4wd shifter to jerry, i am sure he can make you an adapter, because tyhe shifter mechanism off the 5spd is different than the 4spd's
the 5 spd shifter assy fits onto an arm that bolts to the tranny, the shifter and 4wdd are both like this in one unit.
everything for a rear suspension can be left the same, but parts off an (ea82), the car the tranny came from, can be converted over for bigger brakes.
you will need the driveshft from the 5 spd
you might have to modify the shifter hole and tunnel to fit it, but mine went into a 2wd. general disorder put a 4spd in a 2wd, and one method i suggested that he made work was to stack washers between the body and the trans crossmember to drop the tranny down just enough to clear the trans tunnel.
you could have jerry make your 4wd handle, so it fits and appears stock for that car.
