No. If you clean them, you will notice they are a different colour. One will be black, the other gold.
The slots are different in the ABS tone wheels, hence different colours.
The EF has longer wheel studs too.

I am assuming the EF 'mont has ABS....yes???....so NO, the EB ABS type rotors will not be compatable with the ABS system on the EF.

The rotor themselves can interchange, as I have EF-EL rotors on my EB. The ABS ring may be able to be swapped over. They are just a press fit and you can punch out the EB short wheel studs, which will also remove the ABS ring, and then swap in the longer EF wheel studs, and then tap the EF ABS ring into place.

Worth checking out IMO.

Cheers
BenJ

I actually swaped my rotors yesterday, EB abs fit straight on, dunno about the abs thing as yet but i have had no problem at all.
I will state that i only did front rotors, rears are compleatly different.

As stated above, I think you will find the ABS ring is different as the systems are made by different companies.

Good Luck
BenJ
