All that is required to swap them in is an adapter plate that welds onto the 250ES/ 350D axle tube to match up with the 300 swingarm mounting flange. The diffs themselves are the same gear ratio and bolt right up to the swingarm.
you forgot to mention that the rear brake cables wont be a simple hook
