yes I do, and wouldn't consider anything else for an EA82. with the addition of an SJR 2" diff shim, you can easily run it adjusted for 5" and not worry about the rear axles.
cutting and fabbing? just cutting the rear bump stops right? or am I forgetting something.

Keep in mind I'm running 29" tires.
The kit itself:

I thought I'd reiterate this little point...The rear wheel is brought forward (though it doesn't look like it does on EA81s as much as EA82s, just from petes pics), but the trailing arm pivots right there, so it can't get any closer. there is no need for any more clearance there to allow for articulation.
I don't think the EA81 kit is a "high clearance" kit. Above it says the subframe is dropped equally with no extra axle strain. If that is the case then the rear wheel will not get any closer to the front of the fender well. With the EA's trailing arm suspension, the wheel will get closer to the front of the fender well when the suspension is cranked up or drooping, but when it compresses it the wheel swings back away from the front fender well (but not by much).
I have a 4" lift (not AA, but exactly the same idea) on my EA81 hatch and I run 28.5" Swamper TSLS. There are NO clearance issues in the rear, whether either side is drooping or completely stuffed.
So basically, what I'm saying is don't worry one bit about that rear wheel clearance! It's the front end you're gonna have to go to town on to make the big tires fit.
