You can fab up a body lift yourself if you have decent fabrication skills.

your best bet is to get ahold of John in Eugene Oregon (if you are in the Northwest) and have him make you a lift (he can go up to 12 inches)

The other way to go is to buy a lift from PK davis (very well proven lifts) (dont get me wrong, Johns are good too) his address is www.ozified.com

I will be installing a PK lift on my 82 BRAT shortly after I get my 88 GL out of there. I havnt installed a lift YET so I dont know how hard it is, but the approximate price for the kit is $350.

It may take a while... I've had the BRAT since June and its still barely started on. THe lift kit is in the corner still boxed up under some tools. I guess the other cars kept taking priority.

I will post pictures when its done though
