E99 Front Suspension

Is it possible to swap out the e99 upper track bar bracket & lower shock brackets (on top of springs) to a later style an make it a 99.5-03 front suspension? or is there other parts that need to be changed (apart from drilling the lower bracket)?

it just seem easier to find parts when it come time to buy a lift kit.

Yes, you can swap the shock mounts (so as to use the round rather than square u-bolts), and the track bar bracket. Also, consider getting a late 99 powersteering box. MUCH stronger, I've broken several early boxes.

Unit berrings and rotors are needed to swap out... lockout hubs are the same...
