Default lowering a bonneville

Hi, new to the forum. have a question about lowering my 2002 bonneville. I cannot seem to find drop springs for bonnevilles. Does anyone make them? If not, will grand prix springs work, are the strut assemblies the same? Any input would be helpful, Thanks.

they are different bodies, the Bonni is an H-body and the GP is a W-body

someone else might know if they have the same strut assemblies or not

the 00+ Cadillac Deville uses almost the same suspension that we do, so its a possibility that they will work

The struts from a W-Body I think are interchangeable. The springs not so much, I think the spring rates are too different. You might get a lower drop than you want and your ride might suffer quite a bit

get some fat chicks to sit in the back while you drive by better looking ones... just make sure your rear windows are tinted and your front open
