i just bought my baja a few months ago and it came with 31" tires in back.
i dont know what kind of tranny it has, the guy never told me.how would i tell what kind of trans it is? this car only has a 1973 1600 single port/stock carb and no performance mods Sad is this going to be enought to turn the big meats outback? i never drove the car, as soon as we got it we took the engine out. so i dont know how much power she realy has. i also wanted to know how to get a little bit of front end lift on her, kinda to make it look level w/ the 31"s. any help app./ by the way, im working on this thing in northern mi w/ a non heated garage Sad and im only 14 yrs old.

your stock trans will be fine for 31" tires.

the stock 1600 engine could use some beefing up. stockers only put out 40 horses. that enough to have fun with a 245 size tire. its a bit shorter than 31's.

now maybe that freeway flyer (your trans) may have gears that will turn the 31's with the 40 horses. I do not know.

my baja has since received a stock 1600dp to replace my old stroker that died and it has problems movin the 31's very fast.

To level front and rear consider 7.5x15 truck tires. Used on front af bajas for years. 29.5+/- dia and fit stock rims. I'm just not sure if they clear without lifting, but think they do.

Thanks... The best thing that I can tell you is... Take your time, ask lots of questions and look at lots of pics. When you do all of this you can see what works for other people and pick and choose what you like for your car. I have borrowed lots of ideas from other builders.

I will be glad to help however I can, just ask... Wink
