I'm trying to figure out what it would take to lower my new ea81 wagon, I've pretty much got the back figured out, either shim where the torsion tube mounts to rotate the wheels up, or clock the torsion bars one notch, and then adjust the rear diff hanger accordingly to get the right axle angles back. I'm not sure what I can do about the front, I dont think I can really fabricate something like I can in back.

Caboobaru is lowering his Gen 1 Brat. The process has to be similar?:confused:

for the front just cut a few turns outa the springs... safety might be an issue, but its always an option...

good luck!

Cut the springs, and move the strut tops out to correct the camber. 2WD spings will lower it a little if cutting sounds too harsh.
