EF has a big sub frame that is totally different to the AU one. You cant swap much over. It is possible to adapt to entire AU sub frame over but is a fair amount of work

no no in the EF ... I was thinking about brake swaps etc. I also have some brake calipers from a new BA but need the uprights etc. I may be able to get AU subframe from a stacked car I know of.

Took me 2 weeks solid work removing relevant bits from an AU and converting the EL to accept them. This also included converting to IRS

I am running FULL AUII suspension, crossmember, engine, pcm, bcm, brakes etc. AU wheels bolt straight up no spacers or adaptor plates.

Basically have full AUII running gear in a EL.

Do what I did, buy a AU from the auctions and transfer all the bits. You will need a lot of paitence and access to some basic wedling gear

Yeah but the offset man, lol. So many more wheels could fit, would be great.

Will do. Thanks for that. Yes i do run adapters, 40mm rear for the AU rims. 10mm on the front. If i chose a different set of AU/BA 17/18's i wouldnt need the front spacers.
