Go to the Pontiac Dealer and ask them. That is what I usually do. But I looked at my neighbors 98 Grand Prix and the sway bar is different. So once I get a metal bender, I will just make my own.

I just replaced the front sway bar on my '92 SE (the original pitted and the driver'* side end snapped!). Stock size was 32mm and I replaced it with a 34mm unit (GM part# 14081409). The suspension setup may be different on your newer car though.

As for the rear, whatever it is, it'* pathetic. First mod this summer will be a new bar from Addco.

I am looking to upgrade my rear swaybar on my 95 SSEI. Is there anybody that have done this ? Is there a big differecne in handleing? I am also looking to put KYBs at all corners with stock springs. Just wondering if it will make the car handle better. Who should I purchase the swaybar?(Summit,Jegs,ETC) Thanks

Umm... the only person who has done swaybars on their Bonneville is Scoot Cook (owner of Intense) and he had custom ones done, don't remember the sizes. I will be making my own as well and depending on the size will be offereing it to other people as well in the future. Um... changing your struts right now is still iffy. I will be doing some custom down Koni adjustables on my car and seeing how it works also might offer it to everyone else, depends. So yeah... basically noone produces stuff for Bonneville'* except me and speedyguy. Good luck.

I notice that addco sells a rear swaybar for the 95 ssei which is 7/8.I don't know how much bigger this is compare to the one that I have.(didn't get a chance to look under the car)I think that the SSEI have a better suspension then the se but are not sure what the difference is. As for the struts I had then on my other car and I like the way that the car drove, that is why I am looking into the KYBs. I know that the Koni is a very nice piece but for the money I really don't need it to be adjustable because I know myself that I will never change then,(I just like to set it and forget about it)LOL. Thanks
