Wheel Wells and Lift Kits

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of doing a lift on my Brat (1983, so it's an EA81) and have three questions:


1. Is there anyone that makes a 3" lift kit for EA81?


2. How close can you get the tire to the wheel wells before they will hit once the suspension is compressed? (I measured 15" from hub center to the bottom of the fender. Without doing a lift, if I ran 28" tires, would they hit the wheel wells ever? Would I have to go smaller than 28" tires? In other words, would 1" between the tires and the fenders be enough distance to keep from hitting?)


3. I heard from AKghandi in a different topic that, "On an ea81 you have to drop the subframe when you lift it. Otherwise your cv axles will explode." What's this mean/is it valid?
