Hey guys,

Just wondering if its possible to put VS or newer struts and brakes into my VL.

Makes it alot easier to install VT brakes and i imagine they would be better struts aswell.

Cheers

vs commodore V6 S2 and a BA XR6T
it is doable...i have herd/seen it done to a vb and a vl once before. needed to modify the strut top and use teh vr/vs lower control arms and something to do with the steering rack...however i do forget what else they did (if anything else) but like i said it can be done and pretty sure it wasn't that hard to do

Get in the ute
you 'can' do it, but you'll end up with epic neg camber and increased track due to longer control arms.

something custom will have to be made somewhere along the way to cater for this.
