They don't have head units like 9" diffs where centre can be swapped...
The whole diff should fit anyway...

id assume its a smaller job to change them then it is to swap the whole diff

Which entails going backwards 3 years to a not as good design. Also less versatile when being lowered.

I'd be spending the money and swapping the centre.

the reason of the change was to reduce the over-steer problem ef's had.
id hardly call a safety enhancement a downgrade, but personally i dont mind over-steering on the odd occasion.
