Excellent. I have also heard the lower control arms mount up different between EA and EBII onward, did you have any trouble here?

ahh yea
the ea lower arms have narrower bushes but the arms are the same..
there are 2 ways around it..
1.. you use the ea arms and just put 2 new eb/ed bushes in the rear of the arms.
2.. you can grind the spacer that is welded on the chassis where the lower arm mounts and then you can use the eb arms..
its up to you...

That might be a problem, I don't have the lower arms just the diff.

ok
you can still use the ea arms but you might have to change the rear bushes on the arms or make up some spacers to take up the gap between the bush and the housing brackets..
hope this makes sense.....

Yes I think a 10mm spacer either side of the arm will do the trick.

I won an EA diff and control arms for 99c today so I am able to test it out before hand. I picked it up and it has been sitting out in the weather for years by the look of things but I can swap over the yolk to the EF diff and fabricate the spacers. Should go well with a 3.08.
