1" square tubing?

I don't know but you should lift the coupe!
so is 1" square tubing sufficient enough to make the bracket for changing standard ea81 rear shocks to ea82 coil overs? I know that the piece needs to be longer in width to adjust for different bolt pattern but was curious if 1" is far enough away from inner wheel well to account for coil over shocks larger diameter?, this is a small deal but the last puzzle piece in my own fabricated 3" lift for my ea81 vehicle. I say that because I haven't decided which one to put it on yet. Some how in the last 3 months my stable has grown from 2 - 6 ea81 cars. 3 sets of twins 2 brats 2 t-coupes and more recently 2 wagons.

well remember that I want to use the EA82 coilover so I shouldn't need any length to the bracket as the coilovers are longer than stock EA81 shocks I just remember some one saying they had to use washers as spacers to push the shock out at the top because of the larger diameter of the coil over.
well I'll have to take a look at the cherry Brat to see what it looks like. You can use the square tubing as a spacer and put longer bolts in which I don't see it being a problem unless it rubs on the tire. Guess it all depends on how long the tubing is. Maybe those coilovers will end up in the cherry Brat;)
