later model diff conversion

i'm about to do a diff conversion.. from EA 3:23 to a stronger 28 spline ED diff. Do you guys know what i parts i need to fit it properly, such as the mounts/tailshaft or anything like that? It's basically the whole axle that i'm going to be puttin in.

Cheers

Re: later model diff conversion

if you're gonna change the whole housing, with the centre and axles, then all you have to do is bolt it in, change the unijoints (optional but adviseble) and bobs ur uncle.
good luck

Re: later model diff conversion

I think the EDs have a wider control arm mounting on the diff, requiring you to get the correct bush pressed into the diff end of your EA arms.....

Re: later model diff conversion

Oh and you will need the tailshaft as the uni joint on the ED diff is a flange mount.

Re: later model diff conversion
