I will soon be doing a complete transfer of all my EL bits into my ED. My only "gotcha" as such is the ABS. My ED GLi has it, the EL GLi doesn't.

Considering that fact that all the EL's wiring will be installed, would it simply be the case to transfer the ABS bits from the ED into the EL loom and then use ED front hubs/discs. One thing I am missing and will need (if the transfer is relatively simple) would be EL ABS axels for the rear.

So, the question is - is it straight forward to put the ED ABS setup into an EL given the fact that ABS was an option on the EL?

If yes, then does anyone have any EL ABS axels for the rear of a wagon.

Cheers
RD

Thanks Ray

First bloody time I rush into posting a thread without doing a search and there is multiple threads!

Soduns like I'll put this into the too hard basket for now and install the proper ABS at a later date. Maybe I can can transfer my ED ABS into my wifes EB :)

Cheers

Bruce, with the amount of work required, it's better to fit the later ABS. EA-ED is okay, but again amount of work is a fair bit.

I know what to search for though.

Got a set for an EL XR6 sedan - should fit a wagon I'd think.

I think you are right Ray, When I strip the ED I'll just set the ABS aside for future use.... maybe. I'll build the ED hybrid without ABS for now until I source all the approriate bits.

I am interested in your axels though, will give ya a yell after Christmas to see if you still have them.

Cheers
