I think you may find the LTD diff is an early borgwarner diff.

The simple way to check is to look under the car where the tailshaft meets the diff, and see if the diff and tailshaft have flat flanges that bolt together. If so the diff should be the later one.

Early diffs use the unit joint to join the two toghether. If it is an early one, it will have the wrong number of splines on the axles and centre. This is important, as if you want to keep the ABS in your car you would need to use your current axels. I would also be checking the diff ratio.

Another difference on an early diff are that the upper control arms are narrower and it is not a direct swap. There are ways around it however.

I hope this is of some help.

As you are in NZ, you will have to check with your local authorities regarding what changes you can make.

Cheers
