Afterwards I install Monroe air struts in the rear and monroes in the front... Never regreted it... Still riding just as good too.. On my last trip to WV in late august, with the new struts and the added sway bar bushings the drive was almost fun...lol... Felt much more attached to the road

I guess that our pontiacs have slightly stiffer suspension settings from the factory as opposed to a buick, both cars having FE1, but one being stiffer than the other... Slight spring and shock diffrences can make a diffrence... My friends Park Ave just rides tooooo smooth for me... Even he says its a little too soft for him...
