I put my lokka into my car using a EF XR diff housing. I used the original control arms but the diff sits too far forward and causes all sorts of vibrations. Are the EF lower control arms shorter?

nah the lower r the same size and the upper control arms im pretty sure there the same but the el may be shorter than the ef but i know tickford upper arms r longer tho because when i replaced mine upper arms they gave me the starded el upper arms they to short instead of giving me the ef tickford arms and holes on the diff r set different too thats y it vibrates

I have just fixed it. I didn't realise there was the additional bracket for the EF XR upper control arms. I changed them and now its perfect.
