...pushed close to it'* limits.
I have noticed since I started driving the Lesabre how much of a different vehicle they are.
The Lesabre is best just idling down the road -no fast corners, no hard accelerating, and no high speeds (over 85 mph as she starts to wander).
All of my Bonnevilles (1992 SE -fully optioned except no leather or steering wheel controls, 1993 SSE, 1994 SLE, 1998 SSE, and 1999 SSEi) were at their best when put through a spirited run. Cruising was okay, but they felt their best when let loose.
Mods so far that have helped the Lesabre feel more like a Bonneville have been STB, CAI, 16" rims with 215/60/16 Goodyear Eagle GT II'*, and 99 L67 coil and ignition module -all have been improvements. The STB has been by far the best improvement, but it'* still no Bonneville. Hopefully my power mods I have planned and the suspension mods do the trick -just have to be patient now since I'm working on two cars at the same time -not too easy on a thin income.
I hope with the swap of the FE2 sway bars with Poly end-links, and fixing the torque steer I have in 1st gear (no it'* not a traction problem -it'* a steering problem) and under hard accelleration at freeway speeds will really help to give the feel of Pontiac 'Excitement'.
Let'* just say there'* no excitment driving this car the way it is, much less the way it was stock, after having driven performance oriented Bonnevilles for the past 5 yrs.
