XE bits into XC frontend

Hi, I have an XC ute with a rather tired front suspension and I have just bought an XE S Pac car for parts, I have checked out the front end on the XE and it's in perfect condition and my question is what suspension parts are suitable for use on the XC , can I change the lot over (controll arms drag links etc.)
Thanks Graeme

Re: XE bits into XC frontend

The whole lot should fit straight in

Every component except the XE caster rods (radius, strut, whatever term is preferred) WILL fit. The XD-F are shorter at the front than their earlier 'brothers', so the caster rods are shorter as well. You can come unstuck with tierods sometimes, but if you are swapping the whole lot over, than you will have no worries.
