  1. Imo i’d use the ea82 front end. Easier to find parts, better axles, and it gives you the option to run manual or power steering. Solid build. Very similar to mine.

    EA81 lift writeup

    I made a writeup for an ea81 lift. Let me know what I should add or needs modification. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tj10tAHy26scnxFRt7JBJs_mHIx_WDRlg1ecVl3HMnE/edit?usp=sharing

    Lifted Brat and Loyale build

    Also after some tail lights that are in OK condition or has small cracks for my brat. I have a set or two but it's way to nice to put on. Let me know if you have any leads.

    Lifted Brat and Loyale build

    Brats been getting some love as well. I'm building off my existing square tubing front bumper. Made an upper and lower hoop and the skid plate is going to tie into it as well. Bent up a simple rear bumper too. Using 1.75" .120 DOM. I got UELS as well. Prepping for king of the hammers

    Lifted Brat and Loyale build

    22e block with 205 heads. New seals all around, killer B pickup, 11mm oil pump, reused t-belt. Got my 04 WRX harness trimmed by SJR just need to start throwing things together.
  7. I’ve done it before. Just hit the outer part of the cup and be careful not to damage the boot. Once there are enough threads showing, screw the axle nut and drive it in the rest of the way.

    Picked up a JDM sti 5 speed, EJ22 longblock, and EJ205 complete with bad bottom end. Got the 2.2 and 2.0 torn down the 205 heads will be getting decked friday. Ill also be picking up a 2004 wrx bulkhead, ecu, and pedal assembly friday. He also has DW 2000cc injectors for sale at a decent price. I’m thinking that size is overkill even running e85

    Well spoob there goes all my pictures. Picked up another EJ22 longblock with significantly less miles. Also will be picking up a JDM sti 5 speed and a blown WRX EJ205 this weekend both for dirt cheap. Pretty set on my motor option now. EJ22 n/a block with EJ205 heads. Gonna be running STOCK internals CR should be high 8’s. And my block is a 96 so supposedly it’s slightly beefier pistons than 97-98. Also going to need a good tune and i’ll be running some corn. I now have a chopped 98 2.2 harness for sale. PM me

    EJ to EA axles

    Good to know. I always forget ea81 and ea82 axles are different lengths
  13. I posted in the other thread i’m sure you saw. Another option is GC automatic driveshaft. My friend used it and he says : The driveshaft is maybe an inch shorter than what would be ideal, but the splines on the slip yoke still have 2-3” of engagement, and the dust cover still overlaps over the seal on the tailhousing.

    EJ to EA axles

    I am planning to do a EJ trans swap in my ea82 wagon very soon. My friend has an ej trans in his brat and this is what he wrote : Cvs are hybrids. I put EJ inner joints on the Brat axles. Driveshaft is from a an automatic GC. I made a bracket to hold the carrier bearing. I put the Brat spider gears in a newer 4.11 rear diff so I can run Brat rear axles
  15. Probably gonna pick it up this weekend. Can anyone confirm final drive for me? Code is TY752VBBAA I get 4.11 but other sites say 3.9 Thanks
