hey people,
i remember reading some where that you can put an au1 diff cover on an e series for a better watts link pivot point.
Would this be true for an ef lsd?

iirc it was street fords i read it,
if you driven ef vs el imo the difference in rear steer is enough to want to modify
specially on a wet windy road.

EL had the revised watts link pivot position.

The difference is noticeable.

If you swap the entire diff, you'll also require the rear half of the hand brake cable.

Watts link is the same from XE onwards and the diff cover is EL/AU type.
