how low are you going? too low without the adjustable panhard rod on live axel and one of the tyres will scrape against the guard (forgot which side it leans to). it's probably worth to get it tbh.

OP, there are a million threads on this already. Do a ****ing search.

My reply to the last guy who asked: http://forums.justcommodores.com.au/1158952-post20.html


also, I'm not sure what you are trying to acheive from seeing side-on pics. The panhard changes nothing from the side. The rear axle itself slides to the left if you lower it on the stock panhard. The lower you go, the further it translates.

. do VN SS' have IRS?
absolutely not :)

There was ONE SINGLE VK or VL, can't remember which (I think VL), that had IRS. After that it wasn't seen again on a Commodore until VP Calais and SS, with an option on VP lower spec models. (I've seen one VP 5L auto executive with IRS and ABS.)

I don't know what the VL was, AirStrike should know if he ever pops his nose in here..

I think it was a one-off build though which leads me away from Director.

Also, cheers, I forgot about VQ.
