5lug swap cross member ?
Posted 27 May 2008 - 01:34 PM
what I want; 5lugs from a xt6.
Question will the xt6 cross member work in my ea82 wagon?
edit; my car is not turbo charged, and this is why my cross member is modified.

I'm assuming engine crossmember?
why is your turbo crossmember modified? and even if it is, don't need to swap it out to go 5-lug.
the XT6 engine crossmember will fit. but the XT6s use a very different power steering system, and, as a result, I don't think the EA82 steering rack will bolt up the crossmember, and converting to the XT6 system would be a definite downgrade.

I'm assuming engine crossmember?yes
why is your turbo crossmember modified?to clear the nonturbo exaust and even if it is, don't need to swap it out to go 5-lug.I here you have to modify the hole where the lower control arm bolts, plus get rid of my hacked up cross member

I'd leave it as-is.

I'm not 100%, but I'm thinking the mount bosses for the steering rack are reversed on the XT6 crossmember vs the rest of the EA-82 ones. There's a round one, and a square one on each, but they're flipped side to side.

The XT6 crossmember also has wider spacing between the bolts that mount it to the frame rails.
o rly?! I didn't know that.......
