Question XR Suspension Fully Adjustable??

I'm reading the latest Wheels and in its GT article it mentions that the GT and XR8's suspensions are fully adjustable for camber, castor and toe at the front and camber and toe at the back. It also says GT and XR8 have the same "setup".

Anyone in the know able to confirm/dispute this?

If true, are XR6/XR6T suspension the same?


My List of Quintessential Performance Fords:
GT40 MkII (1966); Cosworth DFV V8 (1967); Boss 429 Mustang (1969); Escort BDA (1969); Falcon GTHO Phase III (1970); ..yawn.. (1971-1984); RS200 (1985); Sierra Cosworth RS500 (1987); Ford GT (2005)?

I like your new avatar Martin!

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Only springs would be different. Toe,castor & camber would be the same.
