You can use the rear axle, but you will need to alter the brake setup, and possibly muck about with the control arms.

The biggest headache is the handbrake setup.

I had the EF/EL handbrake cable brackets welded on my EB diff when I wanted to use the EF/EL handbrake handle.

My recommendation is to wait for an EF/EL Tickford LSD diff to come along.

Cheers
