Hey BonneAlien,
In lieu of this remark:
" but the only difference is..the boneville is way tighter than any of the other cars named. Bonneville looks 10x better in appearance. "

You obviously have never seen or driven a BLT (Buick LeSabre T-Type). Don't get me wrong I like the Bonneville, but the truth is it can't stand next to a BLT. And now that I have a L67 (SC II motor)...man !, well all I can't say is... Maybe Hammer said it best.

" You CAN'T touch this ! "

All in love...no offense intended.

Peace,

TuType

TT,

Go look in mechanical maintenance. There'* a guy doing a Series 2 L67 swap into an older model GP. You might be the best person to help him out.

I remember those! What year is yours? I think the last year for those was 91. That was a two-door, kind of like a 2-door 87-91 bonneville.

That would be 1989 my friend. TuType is right, something special about those cars.

Vega and 1975-81 RWD egg cars (Sunbird, Skylark, Monza,etc) were also H-bodies

Just to throw some fun into the pic the springs on the 2000 Bonneville are much like the 98-2001 G Body Aurora. Actually same spring format but much different rates. So if you try and do a swap your Bonneville will have the front end up in the air and the rear will be slightly higher. lol So the 2000-2003 Bonneville has some G Body parts already and also has a similar format on the front clip to that of the GP.

I would say its a mess right now because GM is in transition. The parts are all coming from the same pool so using the G Body springs in preparation for a v8 is a great idea. Obviously the v6 Bonny has a different rate and wont work with the current G body springs but it is an indicator of things to come.

Domestic performance is going to produce a spring for the newer Bonneville as well.
