    Not sure. Supposedly the only things that carried over are the door skins and roof panel from VE to VF.

    supposedly the connection on the SS struts and it's spring saddle are in different locations to accommodate a 20 inch wheel base. which renders the factor sway bar and links possibly unuseable.

    I've also heard the bore diameter at the strut mount is different but don't know for certain. Supposedly the SS and Camaro have similar suspension pieces - but they don't cross to the G8. Which is why you see PPV to G8 packages but not SS to G8. Might be worth asking the seller to take some measurements before you buy.

    It might be an easy retrofit with say custom sway bar end links or such.

    Do you mean 20 inch diameter wheels?
