I have just bought an XH Pano and have a couple of questions. The front shocks need replacing. I have a good pair out of an EF Wagon. I know the shockers are the same, are the springs the same so I can just bolt the assy in?
The exhaust looks similar to a Wagon exhaust. Is this correct?
Cheers

Front springs should be the same - outbacks and 1 tonners may be slightly heavier - you need to use spring compressors when getting the assy's off and on, so you can compare and swap springs if need be.
XH's run the wagon/fairlane/LTD long wheelbase, so you should find the exhausts to be the same.
If the car the exhaust is going onto has LPG, you'll need to run straight pipe and remove the rear muffler (the one to the rear of the rear axle).

Why is that? just wondering.

The rear muffler will foul the LPG tank(XH's we're talking about here).

Just a quick clarification as far as EF/EL and XH I6 go:
Cat converter pipe, muffler/resonator pipe (middle one) should fit all.
Rear pipe (goes over the rear axle) will differ with sedan, wagon and ute.
