Is there a difference in diffs of non ABS equipped EA and ABS equipped EB, other than centres and ratios?
What i mean is, the EF diff is different to EA,EB and ED because of handbrake position, is there a similar difference in the ABS setup?
Thanks

the abs use a reluctor ring on the end of the axles for the abs and the axle housing has the abs sensor holes

Ok Disco, My non ABS diff has just been rebuilt so wanna keep it but I also want ABS off the EB XR6 is it a simple/tricky conversion or is the ABS diff equipped with a different caseing?

Basically can I fit the ABS to my diff?

from experience, i honestly reckon the ABS in early cars (such as eb-ed) is crap! imho, i wouldn't worry going through the hassle of converting it to ABS...

Just to compare, drive an eb/ed with abs, then hop into a later car such as VZ or BA/BF. The difference is just amazing.

how is that even a fair comparison??? Why not compare the efficiency of the air conditioning system in an EA over a BF? Of course the difference will be amazing.

ABS in the EF is quite well designed for the EF - if you want to put it in, it isn't hard. I'll help where I can and you can even put some doco together!
