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.
