Default GXP handling

Recently drove a GXP and was impressed with its ride and handling. Question for GM parts man....What are part numbers of springs, struts, shocks. Appears to me that they'd bolt right into my 2000 ssei. There is also a front strut to strut brace in the GXP
What I'd be missing is the big brakes, and maybe bigger sway bars and 18 inch tires.
I already have 17'*, so probably not a major difference there. INPUT?

Dont think a GXP'* suspension would work, it'* a completely different body.

they're still the same chassis so it should fit just fine.

I thought that the GXP was a different chassis but the SE and SLE were still H bodies.

That would be the first I heard of that. The VIN still indicates H body.

IF thats the case then forget about the suspension! I'm all for getting a 4.6 swap over a L67!
