From what I've read the whole front end of a VN will bolt straight into a VB-VK, but what about the diff?
Is this a bolt in proposition?

What about springs and shocks, will the VN ones fit an early model?

I haven't played around with Commodores much so I don't know.


Cheers.

VN-vp front end is a direct swap, rear end also is a bolt in job but diff is way wider and limits what wheels you can put on without having scrubbing problems. Rear springs fit dont know about the shocks i would imagine they would.

I got Vn springs in my vk
And last run of vk's changed from Sailsbury to Borg Warner..I think

So pretty sure Borg warers from vl is direct and Vn/vp are wider I velieve

think VL's are wider too.

only the efi 6 VK ever came out with borg warner. everything else is salisbury.
My 85 carb has a borgwarner under the back, i think all 6's went to it circa start 85 production or "b" vk on the chassis no.
