Im pretty sure the lada and fiat sumps are a different shape at the front I think the lada sump has a bulge on the passenger side where as the fiat doesnt

This is why I am going to do a simple flange change, I have seen it done (well photos) with fiat engines,peugeot diesels and Opel 1.8/2.0
Well straight forward more so than simple Id say

Sorry, when reeding the comments (above) I thought the 132 sump can't be used for some or other reason. :oops:

I was also thinking of dropping the diff 10 (maybe 15) mm. I don't think that could cause any problems.

Sump clearance?

sump clearance and the thought of being able to raise the front higher and also having a stronger setup for the diff

yip, although if you do decide on the lift get new type CVs from the UK with the 3 roller/spherical bearing ends. I'm planning on getting new type ones as amatter of course.

When I lifted the front of mine I put the lada in reverse and turned the wheel slghtly and it would make a bad noise and felt like the front locked up noticed it mainly when I was reversing out of car park
