I'm pretty sure that an XC disc brake set up would fit straight in.
Can anyone confirm this? :?:

an ED diff will fit if you have the spring saddles welded onto the diff, although you'll haveto get some custom rims made due to the difference in width betwen the XW-XY and XA-EL/XH rear track

to make things easier, try to find a diff from an XG/XH XR6/8 ute, they still have leaf springs at the same spacing as the XW/s, although the width of the track will still be an issue
