You can get the kit to fit mcpherson struts and rack and pinion steer to the X series falcons and au is not that much different to ef anyway so why not.

There was an AU RTV? I thought the RTV model only started with BA.

There's a fella on here, actually 2 I think whove fitted AU suspension setups in E-series.

the RTV type AU ute was just a motor show special,

AU/BA to E series requires some work that would make your engineer a VERY rich man!

This is correct the AU series RTV was also known as the R7 and was a highly modified AU on which the territory and the RTV originated from... when ford released the BA, one of the motor show concept cars was in the form of the then unnamed RTV and once they decided to go into production they held a contest for the name. There was no AU RTV.

Edit: Heres the proof.
