i know the standard bj4 comes with, and uses the b4 front wishbone
but can u use b4 front wishbones on the WE ?? i know it comes with the JConcepts front wishbones but would be handy spares wise to know whether i can chuck on a b4 one

I think the inner mounting points on the WE wishbones are thicker / longer, so stock b4 ones would need to be spaced out properly I guess.

You could probably space it, but i've got the old bulkhead + brace for scenarios like this, take the new one off, old one on with b4 wishbones and done.
Spacing wise, i'm unsure, you could find out by having one side with the worlds wishbone, and one side with the b4 and try get the driveshaft the same either side.
