I reckon the EA to ED have a better parkbrake setup than EF, EL, AU.

I have to agree.

I've installed a ED diff to an XF, I ended up keeping the ED brakes.

Come to think of it, the EA diff is the same one in an XF, as are the trailing arms. But if you use the EBII and ED diff, at least you can drain the diff oil without taking the back cover off.

Just had another thought, you will need adaptors to fit the later diffs, as the lower mounting bracket is wider than XF and EA.
I have an EBII diff housing in my EA.
