I am looking for a replacement diff for my ED wagon and am after a stock ED/EF/EL diff if you have one.

Please PM me with price & location if you can help. I am in Riverstone in Sydney's West.

Cheers
RD

Thanks HP

I already have an EB car diff here that I could use if needed. I don't have to tooling available to do center swaps so will wait until I can get a complete wagon diff.

Cheers
RD

Could you get me a price for it please? Not sure I could afford an LSD one though but a price would be good.

I'm pretty certain utes and wagons use the same diffs. It may widen your search significantly, quite a few non-LSD ute diffs out there
AH, OK - thanks for the info. I will also look out for ute versions then. It is also recommended to put ute springs in too isn't it?

Cheers
RD

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

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.
