umm from what i have read on hear it is easy if you know what you are doing
i think u need to drill a few holes into the EF

BUT the IRS is HEAVIER than the live axle by about 100+KG
so your car will be slower

the AU live axle diff should bolt straight in AFAIK, but the IRS will need a few brackets, as well as an engineers report as it would be considered a significant/major modification to the cars suspension
