lower miles is fine if its a newer car. but you dont want one thats like 8k per year or less because it sat around all the time and that ruins brake, hubs, axles, could be rusted alot, all the lines under it. the auto transmissions dont like to sit unused either.

i doubt you will get it like the bonnie sse, they are heavier. the ls ride with fe2 is kind of like the bonnie but its designed for the light 3.4 not the heavy 3.8. if you get springs for a struts for a ls and leave the heavier springs it may be a little better. the base ones are way to floaty for me but i like the firm ride. i had a ls with kyb struts and it was about the same as stock, which is a bit firmer than the sse bonnie
