the car drives and it drives better than ever, just gotta tweak the cam a bit and it'll be perfect...

as for the rear i got a quote from pedders today:
extra leaf added
ride height reset to suit front (no blocks)

$483

will get it done next week

My understanding is that an EF/EL diff will bolt straight on to the leaf spring saddles. You will need to mod the brake lines and handbrake cable etc.

Re the diff centres, yes, they should be able to be swapped, but it is not considered a DIY job, without the specilist tools etc.

you can put an EL diff straight in... you just need to swap brake assemblies over... Easy as.
