Watts linkages are the go, dont know why every factory live axle set up doesnt use them.

Can confirm for sure that NA Fairlanes have watts linkages, so EA onwards have them too

Good find jbonez. Looks like a Falcon exhaust, although it has rear coil overs? Didn't think Falcons had them.

From doing research on the names mentioned, it looks like either Supatrik or G&J Diffs are the guys to go to. Will be calling them.

XE falcon onwards upto until AU used Watts linkages.

basically, if its a coil spring live axle falcon, its got a watts linkage.

Exactly right Agent86, as I've just confirmed at the local wreckers. The Watts Linkage is only present in sedans, as the utes and wagons use leaf spring.

standard falc watts links aren't real strong, alloy diff hat. go adjustable pan hard or fab a watts link up on a BW78, pintara gears, vl axles , and x series ford center, n build it yourself **** paying for mech work.
