IIRC different control arm mounting points and the watts linkage point on the diff cover was moved down 20-25mm on the EL's

The mount points on the diff assembly are different to cope with the new control arms as well.

So swapping an EF to/from an EL diff (talking complete rear end, not just the innards) will result in wacky suspension.

As long as you transplant the diff and control arms as a complete package you shouldn't have too many problems. If you're running lowered suspension, budget in a pair of whiteline upper control arms then your setup should be close to spot-on.

Thanks for the info guys. dont realy want to go to huge changes and expence, i have already made some changes,and ride is batter than orriginal, but you know how your always looking for improvement!!!
i have a EF 11 XR,added 16" rims ,lovell sports springs and koni shocks (reds)
its a nice ride,but the backs still abit loose,rolls a bit in heavy cornering and does tend to float a bit up front at high speeds.
i know its not a race car, but like i said always looking for ways to improve.
any more tips always welcome, ... thanks again!
