    Alright, so as some of you would know I made a FAQ thread for the VZ section to replace the one that was lost due to the problems with the old host. The guys from the VZ section love the thread, so because I have had some time to spare lately I decided I would make one for the VY section to, and have also started to make one for the VT-VX section. The thread still needs a little bit of work, but it shouldn’t take to long to get it perfect. If I have missed anything or you would like me to add something please tell me and I will get onto it as quickly as I can, Thanks Bill.

    Excellent thread / idea.
    It should be made a sticky at the very top of the VY Section.
    Good Job :thumbsup:

    commodore vy suspension specifiction

    Hi Guys

    Would anyone know, the specifiction on front and rear suspension on vy commodore
    like front spring length,how many coils, production Id code on spring, and pressure rate
    Im looking for same for rear suspension as well.
    I have holden manual that gives me all details from stabiliser bar to spring lengths, Id tags on springs. it covers the Id tag on the struts as well. I just got max ellerys vehicle repair manual, it says on cover 1997 to 2004 vt-vx-vy. but does not cover vy front or rear spring codes or pressure rates. Then i got cd manual off ebay and it was page for page cope of max Ellery vehicle manual, but that risk with e bay
    if any one could help me, that would be really great.
    if you dont want, post it on main page, feel to post me priv message:spew:

    HID Kits..

    Hi,

    Came from auto barn this arvo and I was looking at changing my h11 globes to phillips xtreme vision. They dont make them for h11 but the guy was trying to put me on the HID kits 6000K selling for $299. He said its a simple plug and play and all ADR approved all I need to do is find a place for the ballast.

    Has anyone bothered to do this on their commodore at all? I know this must have been asked 1000000 times but not much comment from the searches I did.

    Thanks

    VY central locking problem

    Hi there. My VY has an intermittent problem with the central locking failing to open all passengers doors. Have read manual and played with two stage unlock and deadlock features to no avail.

    The unlocking of all doors only occurs intermittently and is frustrating as all passenger doors remain locked even from the inside.

    Any ideas??

    Much appreciated.

    vySS wagon
    Need to replace the right tail light assembly in a VY Wagon. I believe there is a different wiring for the S1 Vs S2 variants, is this correct? If so my build date is May03, would this be S1 or S2 (or how do i tell?) Thanks
