Not bolted no, u will have to modify brackets for suspension.

Visit a good fabricator and they will able to help u. A simple job

I was going to do the same thing to my EF XR8 but i sold it off.

Only thing i can see 2 be a little problem is getting the abs to work properly. I know of a diff conversion place that done a 9inch conversion to a EF or EL and had a little trouble getting the ABS sorted but he fixed it at the end.

Maybe get a diff joint to do everything for u?

Yes, as I understand it an AU Live/Solid axle diff will actually bolt straight in. There may be differences in the hand brake setup, but apart from that smooth sailing.

might try to source one and see what the verdict is, just have to get my wheels first as it will be pointless if i don't have the au on offset wheels first
