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?

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