You know, Pat and I spent quite awhile arguing about the body designations before he realized that what I was saying didn't contradict what he was saying.
It boils down this way...
91-96 Park Ave was a C-body a lengthened version of the H-body. Very few differences. They made the switch to the Series 2 at the same time as the H-body, but in 97, the Park Ave was a completely new car, and made the switch to the G-body(my VIN says 1G----------)Then in 2000, the Aurora, which was a G-body to start with, was redesigned, and the Bonneville and LeSabre joined it on the G-body platform. However, the Bonnie and LeSabre retained the "H" VIN body code.
If you look under a 2000+ Bonneville, you will find the same suspension, and a very similar subframe and floorpan. I can take any suspension piece from a Bonnie, or a LeSabre and swap it right over to my car. I can use all the engine mounts. I believe I can even use the subframe.
BTW, the old C-body PA was even closer to the Bonnie. Almost every non-cosmetic piece was exactly the same, except for the full air suspension.
Trust me John, I know where from I speak...one of the major mods I want to do (money permitting) is swap in a GXP suspension. All the important measurements are EXACTLY the same...
