I think one of Zap's old Subaru Fun videos featured it once or twice, but I could be wrong. Maybe one of the vets could speak up on this?
Not many people have lifted a Gen 1 BRAT or any Gen 1 for that matter and all are basically custom one-offs, not a production type kit. There are several fabricators who are members here who would probably be glad to help.

send me a pic and I can help but far as I can tell you is with a 4 inch there is bad camber I took my car to the shop and they maxed out everything on the front to get the camber right but the only way you can get it to be even is by making the bottom arms longer

Well The problem is solved, so for anyone who searches this thread for answers my problems were that the guy who built the lift before i bought it did not compensate for strut mount angles, so the front strut was bound up. Also he clocked the rear torsion bars so the rear was about 3" higher than the front end, which in turn messed up the caster on the front end. After everything was done went for a test drive and got it to 70mph(downhill) not A wobble also the alignment must be good cuz it goes straight even with no hands on the wheel. I'm thrilled to have it on the road and running again.
Very good Information, I am in the process of lifting the Front of my 80 Brat... do you have any pictures? I have not even though about the rear yet...:-\ I am only going 2 Inches or 2.5 Inches for the front square Tube Method...
Also how was the rear done? Please provide Pictures. as I only want to raise the rear about 1" or so... Thanks.

I just want to go up a little in the front to match the unloaded rear and Also fix a bent front strut.
It looks like I will probably leave the rear where its at as it is a lot of work...
