Was wondering if anyone had part numbers for suspension parts for a 1st gen brat. Anything you can think of, I want to get the project at least drive-able and I plan to replace everything.

 

Thanks in advance.

Front struts: Good luck! Rear shocks: have to do some hunting to find them. Most of the rubber bushings are still available through Subaru. Ball joints, tie rod ends. Still available.

Awesome. I hope that's true! I have brand new KYBs for a ea81 wagon and I just got a '79 brat that needs struts and lowering :) can any one confirm that?

Yup, I have Gen 2 struts on my Gen 1 sedan.  Indeed it sits a little lower.  Also the struts are from a Brat so they have adjustable height.  New struts are not easy to find but I did manage to find damper inserts for them. Sorry, can't remember the product code but I think they are from Monoroe.

 

Rear dampers have been a reall mission for me.  There are codes that exist for the replacement parts but no one seems to carry them here in NZ.  I have found a small company that supply 'GAZ' dampers (google it). GAZ have adjustable rebound and compression.  I have been meaning to buy a pair for a while.  If I do this month I will let you know how I get on.

 

Cheers
