Re: ESP suspension ?

Ive got one mate and I'll be buggered if I know. Im thinking that it is probably just the wheel alighnment was revised to suit the wheel/tyre combo and lower ride height and upgraded bars and shocks.

I have heard that the XD's had 16:1 steering boxes when equipped with manual steering, but have yet to see one. XE's as far as i know had revised springs, bars and shocks.

Re: ESP suspension ?

the steering on the XE is revised from earlier models, but not specific to the ESP. I think the length of the steering arm on the stub axle is different, which allows for a better steering lock. And Im pretty sure all XE ESPs have power steer as they are all F/mont ghia's.
