Ok do the SLE and SE share suspersion or do the SLE and GXP? I know the GXP has roll bars (bigger I beleive and what not) but which ones share most of the components! Oh and also I drove a 2001 SE and it road harder than my 2005 SLE did they change the spring ratings?

I believe that the GXP is the only model with a strut tower brace.

And I think the SLE suspension is a lil different but not by a lot.

i think it is different aswell, but i thought that the SE was supposedly softer and the SLE sportier ... i could be wrong

The SLE/SE suspenion will be lighter duty than the GXP due to the N* i'm sure too.

the SLE has the SSEi suspension. the SE is on its own, so is the GXP. Your 05 SLE probably has the same suspension as the 2000-2003 SSEi.

I see "FE2", which would be the sportier suspension.
