wont fit, steering columns are different, EA has splines and EL has a square shank. If you fittes an EL column it will fit. Use a horn pad off an XH ute without an airbag.

used to have an EL GT steering wheel. (looks HAWT) but yeh dont know about it on a EA - (airbag, cruise control, wiring factors) certainly should fit on the EF/EL/NL/NF range

Re: will a EL steering wheel fit a EA??

Surely an adaptor plate could be made up? I'm considering a BA XR wheel for my EB, and I know it definitely won't fit straight on! So I'm thinking about making up a plate or something

'91 EB Fairmont Ghia V8.
Pacemaker PH4000 extractors
Meaty semi-twin system
AUII XR8 t/b & maf, ELGT snorkel
Lows
BA semi-manual shifter conversion
Electronic shift kit
4.11 Hydratrak LSD
AU thermofans
Explorer intake manifold
Contra 16x9 rims, rubber: 225(f)/245(r)
Custom cupholders
Chiptorque HP2 chip
illegal tint

ET: 14.78 @ 91.48mph, 137rwkw!
