 VK Commodore Front End Rebuild:
 Macpherson Strut:
Earlier Holdens used wishbone Front Suspension.
Commodores use Macpherson Strut Suspension.
Each Macpherson Strut contains a Spring and a Shock Absorber. The Macpherson Strut also acts as a Pivot replacing the function of the King Pin or the Steering Knuckle on earlier Holdens.
The Macpherson Strut swivels on a single Ball Joint at the bottom and a Bearing at the top.
 Rack and Pinion Steering:
Commodores use Rack and Pinion Steering which has been positioned behind the Sump.
