Don't think so.
You may be able to mod them

is it just the drivers side that needs more clearance or both sides? Are there any links on here showing the mods required? Cheers

Fit the vr vs k frame and steering racking and it will help you fit the pacemakers, should be no worries

thanks nasty 1
are vr/vs steering racks longer then vb/vn?
Or is it just the tie rods that make up for the wider track?

Do not use the vs steering rack!! vn to vs v8 k-frames are all the same so you can use that and get a vn power steering rack and vl intermediate shaft and you will be sweet

The mounting points are not in the same position as vb vk etc...

Vn-vs k frame works also does vl v8 rack.

thanks 84calais & nasty1.

100% understand the kframes are the same width VB - VS.

but I heard somewhere the overall width on VR/VS was wider so i was thinking if the VR/VS rack was useable at all on a VB>VN conversion (not worrying about which intermediate shaft to use for second) maybe you could put the VB/VN tie rods onto the VR/VS rack?.....or is the rack itself to wide?

hopefully it all works out with the ph5000m extractors.. looking at the pics on the pacemaker site. they appear to be the baby of the buch

forget the vs power steering rack altogether bud it has a square shaft where as the vl and vn have a round splined shaft where the intermediate shaft connects up unless you get it customised there is no intermediate shaft to suit vs rack into vb-vn.
