yes its a ea82. I was planing on droping the the diff 2" so the axles dont bind ,but the im worried that torion bar might break if i dont lower the frt part of the rear suspenion. the other thing i was looking for was the frt strut spacers. I've seen other spacers that dont look like they have the camber offset that is needed i am looking for 0 cmber in frt so the tires dont shave the out side edge.

So if i understand right, your making affordable lifts? :) I hope so, any chance you'd make a 2" lift for a 90 loyale wagon? With all the bolts and pieces straight "Bolt in" system with lengthened steering shaft? Thanks

I would like to look in to making a kit were i can get more than 8inches of travel.
what the kit might take.
1.Use blocks to lower the sub frame
2.Instead of using blocks for the struts, replace strut with coil springs and shock.

Other ideas might include lenthing the control rods to place the hubs outside the car.

Welding in a sub frame then use a four link style suspension, to put in solid axles and a t-case.

Can you do a 3" for an '81 GL wagon? How much is it going to be? I'm local, so no shipping. Is it bolt in, or is there welding/mod involved, aside from steering length?
