Got an au live axle diff and im putting it in to match the offset with the brake upgrade kit on the front. Im aware hand brake and brake lines need modifying, but i have 2 question

1. Do i required el/au upper control arms? will they fit straight on? and whats the difference from ea-ef upper control arms to el-au upper control arms?

2. And cause i have a series 1 eb, do i need eb series 2 onwards lower control arms? will they fit onto the body brackets or do they need to be made wider?

Need these questions sorted so i can order all the right bushes :s

thanks

I think you will need to run the EB s1 lower control arms & use spacers at the diff end to fit it. EA & Eb s1 were "narrow bush". As for the upper arms, good question.
