interchangability of EA82 and EA81 front knuckles?

Recommended Posts

The front knuckle on the RX broke where the strut bolts on during a rally cross run.

I have a set of BRAT front knuckles. Will this bolt on?

thanks

I'm pretty sure the brakes won't bolt on but if you use EA81 brakes I don't see why they wouldn't. The only other area of concern for me would be the tie-rod end fitting the knuckle.

They will not fit. The angles and the tie rod end positions are different. Just look for any EA82 knuckle.

hmmm... that sucks.

One good note... I am really really really happy to have AAA. Saved my butt this weekend.:banana:

here is another thought...

will the bottom of an EA82 strut fit the EA81 knuckle?

I currently have 5 lug stuff on the BRAT, but I am thinking of putting that onto the RX and running 4 lug stuff on the BRAT.
