ok so i fitted the diff into the car but i dont think it turned out right,
the flange at the front of the box appears to be angled upwards whereas previously the ef diff was more of less flat, any ideas?

other than that everything lined up as it should with no hassels.

ditch the captive nut and use the rear hole to bolt the arm in,, this will tilt the diff forward..

are the nuts for the bolt available from bunnings or should i visit the wreckers to obtain some i think the nuts from the lower shock mount are the same.

also i noticed that the handbrake cables are different what should i do in this department?
