Lift kit for my EA81 86 Brat?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about 4" 's would do the trick. Does PK/BYB still exist?

Ozified? Any other good lift kits and website info would be greatfully appreciated.

I'm not having much luck in my searches.

 

With a 4" lift what is the biggest tire setup I could use without cutting

The fenders? BTW, I do plan on the 6 lug conversion so I can tap into the 15"

Wheel market.

 

Will I have any mods with a 4" lift? Driveshaft, steering rod etc?

 

Thanks

 

 

Btw I live in TX.

Yeah your right. This is a pretty tough subject. I can understand how your searches would fail... we hardly ever talk about any of this anymore :rolleyes:

 

Maybe we should create some sort of off-road forum for questions specifically like this one.

First of all you should post this in the off road section. Second, check out sjrlift.com He does some nice lift kits etc. There are a few others as well. PK/BYB doesn't do lifts anymore. And lets see some pictures of your Brat!

with four inches it is not completely necessary to get brake line extensions....i have removed them from the "mounts" and never had any problems.

the steering extension is simple.if you have any common sense at all it should be easy.cheers, brain

I know that you can sqeeze up to 31" tires under a 4" lift, its just about how much cutting/bashing you want to do and how much tire rub you are comfortable with. With a 6" lift, you dont need to cut anything to clear 27" tires. With a 4" there will be a little rubbing unless you do some minor trimming and beating.
