The front suspension up to XF/XG is the same - close enough - but not that much of a gain. Nothing newer will bolt in, but with enough time and money, anything could be made to work. I cant see it being impossible to fit the E-series front end, including shock towers and cross member, but it would be a big job, and not cheap. Plus it would have to be engineered, etc.

Re fitting the Mod to the early chassis, I'm sure it has been done, but you probably need to modify the shock towers...

As above. How big is your budget? 8-)



Yes, I own a Ute. No, I won't help you move!
