6" EA82 lift questions......
Posted 29 November 2007 - 11:44 PM
I'm gonna do an EJ22 swap shortly after the lift, maybe during the lift, don't know yet. I've gotta find the motor first.

Rear brake hoses, front brake lines (the extensions and couplers), you will have to mess with the exhaust, mess with the shift linkage (the rear shifter mount becomes critical, if yours is bad get another/new), extend the steering shaft 5 1/2", the E brake cables just make it (so be careful), disconnect the speedometer cable (rather than pull it apart), rad hoses, heater hoses, fuel lines (feed and return), vacuum hoses (charcoal canister and engine to firewall).
That's all I can think of.

the 5 speed has a different kind of shift linkage all together, and is alot easier to work with once you put big spacers on the tranny xmember.
most 3 or 4 inch lifts put shorter blocks (2 inch instead of 3 or 4)between the tranny xmember so you dont have to mess with shifters, but once you go big, its an issue.
just a little thing to think about/prepare for.

When I did mine, I made a bracket that re-located the shifter stay bar up 6" (on the transmission), then I just lengthened the shifter shaft. The rear shifter body mount literally fell apart when I went to remove it, the rubber had "un-bonded" itself from the two plates, I could not shift it without the mount (it was $30 from the dealer, I had no choice, the one on my other car was in the same condition).
if you're relying that heavily on the rear mount...something else is wrong. I've been driving my car for a year+ without it.....it's only to hold up the back of the linkage.

Mcbrat told me about the hole with the screw and nyloc nut trick. works with stock mounts when they fall apart.

. Next summer It'll be T-cased and full width IFS and IRS. I'll put the EJ22 up where it belongs also. This is just a temp lift.
on the shifters alls Ive done is make a smalltab bent 3/4 flatbar, hooked to the 1 mounting bolt this will bring the linkage rear mt down and forward a inch or so, you may be able to lengthen the front radius rods a inch or so to give more clearance, to move everything forward temparary seems like alot of work,

I was going to make something, but figured WTF, with a new mount I know that is no longer a problem.
If you move everything forward a couple of inches you will be into the rad. I have 31" tires here and they just clear the structure, I cut away the fender bottoms (everything below the mounting tab on the hinge pillar) and am running fender flares.
