Is it possible to simply replace the hubs with the AU hubs??? or is it a whole axel job??? i was thinking if i wanna change to AU and i want a LSD i might aswel get a AUXR 3:45 LSD.... but will this join to my EFs tailshaft correctly??? the reason for this is that my options for different wheels is greatly enhanced by having the AU offset...... Not interested in hub adapters... thanx fellers

mm not a bad thought...
the au solid/beam axle has the same suspension setup as teh e series falcons
not sure if teh mounting poitns are liek

might need the e series wattslink, trailing arms etc onto the au diff

that sorted what about the front?

I have not done the rears, but the Crescent Motors 4pot brake upgrade gave me AU offset fronts, I have been considering an AU Wagon diff housing for a while, but am now contemplating a 9in conversion
