There have been a few of these posts... But to be more helpful, I'm getting a 2" lift made this week and have some extra metal. If you want I can have some made for you also. Very simple setup, blocks in the front with holes drilled 3/4" difference (20* offset for camber correction) at least I think it was 3/4, I don't have my cad drawings in front of me right now. Im going to get the rear brackets figured out sometime soon.
Thanks, the offer's much appreciated. I may take you up on that a bit later on - right now I need to get some stuff out to put the money together for it (and figure out if this is really what I want to do), but I'll definitely keep it in mind.
Seems odd there's not a lot out there at this height - I know most folks are interested in more height than that, but since there's a few of us asking there's evidently some demand for it there.

I had a bad experience with a 2" lift on my 85 Brat, it ate front axles like candy... So keep that in mind... But it did make a world of difference off-road, and I probably wouldnt have a hole in my oilpan if I had left the lift on...
Yeah, you really need to block down the crossmemeber as well. At least 1 inch.
The shorter axles of the EA81 makes it steeper angles once lifted

i'm going to drill the holes today and hopefully install it tomorrow. My camping trip got canceled so I got time to experiment for others benefit. This is using the angle that one eye gave me with a 22* offset. I also had grade 8 3/8" bolts lying around thats why the top hole is 3/8, while the lower is 7/16" to accomodate the top hat bolts. I am really hoping this works out.
