The earlier models have radius arms and lower strut links, whereas the AU has a lower wishbone and a different upper wishbone. They are not interchangeable. (also, the AUI's lower wishbone is different to the AUII's lower wishbone).

IIRC AU front end is the same as EF/EL. I know for sure that the front brakes are the same.

I'm pretty sure the EF/EL's don't have a lower wishbone, but i can't remember the last time i looked at one.

Totally different design for the AU, AU1 has EL brake calipers but that is about it, the rotor/hub design is a totally different design between E and A series.

Au's have a floating hub on the front for the brakes, E series the brake is attached to the stub axle. Also geometry is different. PM macxr8, he replaced the entire suspension in his EL with AUII XR including IRS.
Also XTT909 has done the IRS rear conversion.
