Fitting VR/VS struts into VB-VP Commodores

I have just completed fitting VS front struts into my VH Commodore.
I used the lower control arms, knuckles/hubs and struts from the VS.

I fitted Koni inserts to the struts and they have the same diameter top shaft as the VH so it fitted my strut top ok. I think standard VR/VS strut shafts are bigger diameter which may cause some problems but some aftermarked strut tops may be able to accommodate this.

I have slid my strut tops right in to find out the maximum negative camber i can get and its heaps! Possibly 5 degrees but i can slide the tops out to make it less, only problem then is I have to see how close the tyres are to the guard.

I havn't hooked up any steering to it yet, i will have to use longer rack ends or put extenders in between the rack end and tie rod end like the Commodore Cup guys do.

Hey,on the subject of vr/vs commodores, will a vr/vs 5 speed gearbox fit a vl if I put my vl housing on? And will the tail shaft line up probably? Thanks
