Wagon -> Hatch tail shaft
Posted 17 December 2003 - 06:38 AM
I have one more question... how big of a lift kit do i need to avoid having to change the fuel tank in the hatch to the 4wd style tank?
Some people have told me a 3 inch lift kit will just clear the diff but it may hit sometimes... others have said a 4 inch will be needed... Has anyone done it??

you will want 4 inches, i had 6 on mine, had LOTS of room under there for even a spare auxilary fuel tank...
i took the lift out, it was home-made

so if the autos is shorter, would it be the right length for a hatch( if doing a 5spd swap)?
you could also look for 4wd hatch driveshafts

Thanks for the help guys... most people in Australia are un-aware that this vehicle even exists

You can have the two piece alterred or have them make a longer one piece unit.

Good luck.I'd help you if I had a hatch shaft.

I don't know what it would take but I have a custom driveline that was from my Maroon Hatch. Shipping would probably be very expensive a long waiting. Plus, I need at least $200.00us for it.

Yeah i think it would be too pricey to get it sent over and pay for the shaft. If i have the measurements it would be cheaper to get one made. Then i can just take a Wagon shaft in and tell them how much i want it shortened by.
I have been offered an ej22 to put in the hatch so i may not even end up making it have an ea81 4wd gear box but i would still need the measurements just incase.
