impossible to swap the centre without the know how and proper tools and a huge selection of shims...

easy if you buy a complete lsd diff out of an EF/EL and swap the whole diff over... just nuts and bolts and a handbrake cable...

Cheers,
Tim

I've swapped around 10 diff centres an and never had an issue.

Its a BW diff, if you f**k it, replace it take a punt,

Theres an 80% chance it'll be fine.
The centres are mode the same... its the housings that vary, as long as you use the existing shims and a*** that came with the housing, the centre can be swapped without much issue.

pretty easy to change center's i didnt need a "spreader" or anything just make sure if your changing ratio's to do the pinion as well.
in my case im keeping my pinion and putting crown wheel on l.s.d center because my single pegger is 3.27 and my l.s.d is 2.92

Can you get the pinion out if you have the diff (axle to axle) sitting at your mates place? How the hell to you crack that sucker?
