    I took my maloo for an alignment to be told the LH rear has hit something (prev owner) and the force must have bent something and caused positive camber on that side. It is the type of arm that has toe adjustment (VZ only have this in the VT-VZ range). Is anyone able to confirm of I can get one from a wagon? I've been told by a wrecker who wrecks a lot of HSV's that they are same. thanks guys :)

    To confirm if a wreckers part will fit,
    And if you can safely remove the part,
    Take it to the wrecker [as a sample] and see if the replacement is exactly the same,
    If you can not remove it for some reason, take a photo of it, and some measurements,
    and see if the part is the same dimensions.

    yeh I won't remove mine until I'm ready to swap it out and I dont want to have it out to then discover I can't buy one as it's maloo specific or whatever

    VX through to VZ sedan/wagon/coupes all interchange...These models also have the toe adjusters, not just the VZ range, as you have mentioned

    thanks mate but you are wrong. its only VZ with toe adjustment. I realise the others 'fit'. I have confirmed with Holden dealership that VZ wagon/ute are same arm as VZ maloo. thanks to everyone for assistance

    Yes, toe adjustment on rear has been around a while.
    Can confirm VX S2.


    "The IRS as fitted to VX Series II Models carries over from VT Series II Models, noting the following:
    • For improved handling, multi-link control arms have been added as standard equipment."

    Holden has information about rear toe adjustment on VXII Utes.
    This is specifically rear:

    I don't know where your information is coming from, but it might be best if you have a look underneath some VX series 11 utes, along with VY utes for yourself and then comment.....

    Just another bit of trivia relating to this....VX series 11...The hexangular piece, on the toe adjuster is 17MM....The same piece on VY and VZ is 18 MM....So it's a way to tell if this adjuster has been replaced
