Re: Which diff for my XF?
i just put an EL XR8 axle under my xf (4.1 EFI & T5) and it absolutely hammers. fairly easy too, i already had lsd and disc brakes (fairmont ghia) but all you need is a pair of rear lower control arm bushes to suit EL XR, the xf yoke put onto the el diff, different wheel nuts to suit the el studs, and i got some brake lines made to suit the el caliper on one end and the xf hard brake line on the other (the handbrake setup is different too but i haven't had time to look at that yet, should be able to make the el one connect to the xf one). everything else was pretty straight forward stuff and as i mentioned above - it hammers!
