Sus­pen­sion In­tegrity


The VE runs Tein Su­per Drift coilovers all round, with Nis­san Sil­via items up front, built by the team at Au­tolign. The Sil­via units were cho­sen for both their avail­abil­ity, due to the Sil­via’s pop­u­lar­ity in drift­ing, and three-bolt up­per mount. From fac­tory, the Com­modore front struts use a plas­tic bear­ing on the up­per mount, and th­ese are eas­ily dam­aged un­der race con­di­tions. The con­ver­sion was achieved by weld­ing the up­per strut mounts of a Sil­via into the Com­modore strut tow­ers and en­sures sus­pen­sion in­tegrity no mat­ter how hard Fanga pushes the car.
