G body HA. H body is wider and a lil more stabler.

Yes, the '92-99 have a whopping 0.3" wider body. It is the width of the track, the rubber on the road, where the new body style gains over an inch. The "H" body also is much stiffer due to the integration of the strut towers into the firewall. Add to that Stabilitrak, Magnasteer and bigger brakes, and that is where you will find stable control.
This will probably open a can of worms and we have to make sure we are talking apples-apples. I do agree that for straight line accelleration, the older Bonne'* might have a slight advantage due simply to the weight gain of the new body style with no change in power.
As far as handling and control, this is a major improvement over the older style (comparing stock vs. stock).
