If it is the same series bw diff, then the centre will fit.

As PIMP_LTD has said, only the diff Centre will fit. Not the entire diff from end to end.

Expect to be paying over $600 for a diff shop to fit the gears if you supply them.

My advice would be to try and source a factory XR6 Wagon diff with the 3.45 gears, but they are very thin on the ground. Your ED may have 3.08 gears, but it also might have 3.27. Crawl under there and have a look.

By the time you find and pay for a centre second hand then get a diff shop to install it with an lsd you may aswell just source it all from them, that way you know you're getting new gear that's still well matched.
