Slamming a hatch... opinions? maybe ea82T as well
Posted 23 January 2004 - 08:57 AM
now i've got a lifted hatch, but i've never seen a lowered hatch.. it defeats the purpose of 4wd.. but this summer it might get an ea82T transplant as well..
just thinkin lowered, ea82T, and a nice soundin exhaust might be pretty wicked.. might even scare a few "import tuners" around here, lol..
chime in, whats your opinion.. i'm thinkin drop it 2+ inches in the front and 3+ in the back.. if i get the lowest profile 13" tire i can find they should tuck in real nice..

My ground clearance is 6.5" and yours is 8.3" XT springs will drop my car in the front and back about an inch and a half. (I think about two in the back) you could do that and get the drop you want.
Also, something cool you can do is take your front axles out (or kill them) and then put your car in 4wd all the time. (RWD!)
You could possibly have a RWD EA82T lowered hatch, and we all know that would be sweet. Or if you want good gas mileage, just put in a FWD tranny and system.
but you do know that it'll be a REAL tight fit for an EA82T? You could always swap in the ECU and engine of an EA81T. Just drop it in and do the ECU work.

if you get properly sized bigger wheels, even though you might GAIN ground clearance, the stance will still be in proportion
