Trunk launching is fun. The springs on the lid for the spoiler-less cars are weaker, stronger with the spoiler.

I would not own a bonneville unless it had a spoiler, I don't like the way they look at all without one, but that'* only my humble oppinion.

Let'* have a meet, pull our spoilers, and toss stuff!! (Sounds kinda redneck-ish, don't it?)

Did you adjust the spring or whatever to account for the weight of the spoiler on yours?

The spoiler was installed at the body shop so i don't know what they did concerning the springs.

When you push the button, does the trunk open, or just kinda sit there? Mine will usually swing slowly open, as I have the factory wind and springs.
