These are the only measurements I have found of the RX8 suspension at this stage, they give an idea but not very accurate.

I purchased a pair of RX8 front uprights tonight, I was planning to buy the whole front end but I could not find one for the money I was willing to spend.

While I was there the guy was nice enough to let me take some measurements of the RX8 control arms. As it turns out if you compare the distance of the lower control arm inner pivot across to the face the wheel bolts to for the BRZ and the RX8, the RX8 is actually only about 19mm longer.

Anyway I am pushing ahead with my conversion from mac strut to double wishbone. I won't hijack this thread any longer so if you want to follow the progress then keep an eye my build thread for updates.
