Why do you say that? Your just doing a swap aren't you?

Whoops, I didn't mean you have to put ute springs in with a ute diff. I meant people put ute spings in wagons for some reason, something about being better if lowering...I think.

Cheers
RD

I think I've heard something along those lines too with the BA's. Not 100% sure about it though. I have lowering blocks in my ute. Only cost 50 dollars from autopro
I am hopefully putting blocks in my ED when I replace the diff. I have a set of Lows for the front so need to get the 4x4 rear end height down :) Sounds like the go getting them from Autopro, there's one just up the road from me.

Cheers
RD

That was a little while ago now, but they were a bargain.
I'll check the price out tomorrow and see what it is now :)

You can use an XG/XH rear axle - swap over the wagon springs, brackets/U bolts, etc.
It would be an issue if it were to go into an EF/EL wagon due to the different handbrake setups.

Good to know, thanks. I can now widen my search :)

This is an ED so no probs there with the handbrake issue.

The EA-ED use the same handbrake setup.

The EF/EL use the later setup.
