3:45 or a 3:27

its most likely a 292 or 277 depends on what type of gearbox

Shorter, different mounting point, different pinion angle.
Hard to gauge the difference when I changed all my suspension as well, but at a guess I'd say more grip on launch.

yer the ea diff will fit into ef/el as far as i no the only difference that i no of is the flange on the diff housing for the tail shaft, its a nknuckle not a plate, easily swapped tho... yer the diff centre was put into it out of a later model falcon. bought brand new 3 years ago n am told its still in good condintion.
