    VU SS V8 Ute oxygen sensors

    Ute has one oxygen sensor that just sits on the same voltage (.44) so I assume it’s stuffed?? Can someone tell me where they’re located on a 2002 VU SS V8 ute? Reason I ask is the exhaust system may have been altered before I bought it and want to compare. Are Bosch ones good?
