so can you remember how the brackets were on the car? my EL ones had 1 bolt holding it and 1 bolt holding it as well as going through the arm, the xr ones have 2 bolts holding it to the car then another bolt holding the arm to the bracket, which holds the arm further towards the back of the car

Sorry to hijack but for guys out there who had tall diffs and put an xr one in was there a major difference in accel and getting off the line quicker?

Hey guys,

I just finished helping Mr Ed install his diff and i can totally agree with him when he said the ef xr upper control arms are bent inwards to the cabin because it really clearly does. There is a larger bracket with 2 holes and it's bent outwards to match the upper control arms. I'd post up a pic but we didn't have a camera when fitting it.

For anyone out there that's thinking of putting in an lsd in my opinion try to hunt down a 3.45 as i had a 3.23 in my ED and i can say that 3.45 feels way more responsive through the gears.

Cheers

yep well its in and boy do i have a grin on my face :D For those who are going to do this you DO need the brackets to hold the upper control arm and a really good piece of advice is make sure you know which side they go on! dont mix the brackets up lol. It even took a bit of grinding to get the bolts on the new brackets to fit! But its in and its awsome and yeh you can feel a noticable difference in the gears... punch it in first and the back trys to overtake the front :D
