Apparently if you breathe (hard) onto polariser crystals, any ethanol is purged from your system!
VX II was when the IRC had adjustable camber rods.
The VE was the first to introduce adjustable camber.....The VX series II was the first with adjustable toe rods....
It is easy to confuse camber and toe adjusters, so don't think I'm picking on you
Unsure where Holden got the IRS system from, but I have a fague recollection, Brock wanted it homogaled for use on his race cars....I'm happily corrected with this though.
The rear toe adjusters became standard fitament on VX series II.....Camber adjusters became standard fitament on VE, when the new rear suspension design came into effect
Is this thread still about steering wheel vibrating when braking?

Car to Holden Dealer today.
They say needs 4 new rotors and pads;$1500+
They approached Holden state manager; not covered under warranty; up to me to pay.
Both mechanics I spoke to at dealership thought should NOT be my cost as such low ks (under 16,000; 21 months old).
Oh and report says needs 4 new tyres 'soon' too......:-~
(haven't gone ahead with any of that yet; dealership also says 2 rotors have to come from East Coast)
Why not supply your own rotors & pads? DBA rotors and Remsa brake pads for instance.
Or buy the whole lot and go to a mechanic to fit it all for you. Will be heaps cheaper..
As for tyres...unless you track the car the stock Bridgestones should last at least twice that milage...
I also doubt that your rear brakes need any work !
It sounds like they are trying to bend you over.
They are not covering it anyway...so just go elsewhere...
That's what I would do...
6 months ago i took my car with 30 000 to a dealer for minor service. They said i needed new brake pads front and rear. The report said fronts were down to 3mm and rears down to 4mm.
I came home and measured the pads...
Turned out fronts were 5-6mm and rear pads were 8-9mm. Told them to **** off and wrote a massive complain to dealer principal...
Morons also said i needed new cabin filter and wipers ...
They did not know i replaced both myself 2 months prior !
They also said my throttle body needed service as it was full of carbon.
Total bs...was shiny as...
They were chasing me later after the complaint trying to catch up for a coffee etc.
I used all this against them when trying to score a new engine.... and it worked
They knew that I knew what i was talking about
Can you say which dealer?
Prefer not to on public forum but it is in Sydney
I get hit up with the same items every service, Cabin air filter, throttle body (power steering fluid on the E3), unless I book it in with one specific service advisor. He writes "No upsell" on the job card and they stop asking me. He said it's all bout their system If that dealer hasn't performed the proceedures, then they are deemed to be in need, regardless of the actual condition of the parts.
In my case they were saying my cabin filter was really dirty and wipers were leaving marks on the windscreen...
Total bs and blatant lies...
It probably works with most people so they just keep doing it...
And that is why I do my own maintenance and work.
Ok. I'll try pushing Holden Customer Care to cover the cost of the work when I contact them next wk. I'm going to push the low km/your own mechanics think they should be covered line hard.
Anything else you think I should mention to improve my case......?
Also, any suggestions of good brake and tyre places South of River Perth Metro, to get second opinion.....?
Understand your reluctance Ron, I got told off when naming a dealer in WA who treated me like a ****** on this forum years ago.
As long as your dealer is Southern Sydney, they will be nowhere near me. My local at Northern Beaches is surprisingly not that bad.
Ok. I've referred the matter to Holden Customer Care this morning.
Easily open yourself up to a defamation lawsuit.
If your views are based on definable and provable experiences, that is fact, then you’d be fine expressing and stating your opinions.
Still, you being correct is irrelevant if a company in the wrong wants to make a point of bankrupting you just to send a message not to mess with them. So yes, making public statements on forums can open your up to a world of hurt.
Only if speaking untruths.
