3.45, 3.27, 3.23 and 3.08's....for gear sets.
A 4 pinion centre ( LSD, or single legger) from and EBII or ED will fit too.

as far as i know falcons XA to EA ran 25 spline 2 pinion BW78's, after that they ran 4 pinion 28 spline BW78's (so you can change your axles to run the later center)

And there is a split between 3.08 and 3.23 ratio diffs either the housing or the center (cant remember which one i might be mixing my 8.8 info in here) that means you cant run a ration 3.23 or above in a 3.08 or below housing/center and vice versa

I personally fitted a 3.27 gear set (from an EBII XR8) into an XD 2.92 LSD diff and centre....no problems.
That means, I removed the 2.92 gears, reused the same 2 pinion LSD centre, and fitted the 3.27 gear set.
You can't fit a 2.92 to 3.45 gears or centres into a previously 2.77 diff housing.....was told that by a diff builder guy.

You can use the 2.92 diffs too.
The really odd ball diffs are the 2.77 and the 2.53 ( XE ).
I currently run an EBII diff housing, 3.27 gears (from another diff), an aftermarket 4 pinion LSD centre ( it's sh!t itself about 18 months ago, now it's a single legger.... :( .... ) and axles from the same diff as the gear set, and the brakes from my old EA.

i wanted to get the 3.27 from me EB2 parts car fitted to me EB1 wagooon & fit the LSD from eitha the EA wagooon or the EA sedan ... but no :cry: to use the 3.27 i was told to use the EB2 wagooon diff with the EB2 3.27 and use the LSD out of the AU sedan diff - this was from a reputable diff joint down here ... i have a 2.92 LSD EA wagooon diff as well as a EA 3.23 LSD sedan diff

The diff I previously had in the ED was the same EBII housing, EA LSD centre ( it had 2.92 gears on it), with the 3.27 gears fitted to that....with EA axles and brakes....of course, it was only 25 spline and 2 pinion centre.

EA and EB1 had 25 slpine centres n axles....EBII onwards had 28 spline.....of those 28 spline centres, there were 2 pinion single legger, 4 pinion single legger ( they had a tag that said High Performance), and 4 pinion LSD ( had a tag that said Limited Slip Diff....)....and HydraTrac....a different fish again.
