Thanks for the replys. Just to clarify it's going into an EA. And another thing, are wagon and sedan exhausts "compatible" ?

wagon exhaust are longer becuase of extra wheelbase so will not fit into sedan! unless you have it cut and welded 8-)

ed xr6s have 3:45 lsd and if using complete diff housing they have extra upper arm mounting holes to take away vibration after lowering. If u are fitting diff assy into ea then u will have to either space lower arm bushes with washers or replace the 2 rear lower arm bushes with ed ones as they are wider. Just did this to a mates eb1 and had no dramas.

well may explain why the diff looked newsih, but the cones seem to slip heaps compared to my step dads Car (EB ghia) his is really tight. i noticed the diff looked nee when i was looking at the car to buy and the dude reckoined the owners changed it for towing ?????????? but the 3.45 would have been better towing
