You can get sway bars from a salvage yard from a Bonneville SSE, SSEi, or basically any Olds 98, LSS, Buick Park Avenue Ultra, or Bonneville with either FE1 or FE2 suspension. Of course, on the Park Avenue only 1991-1996 will work, and on the Bonneville 92-99.
As for doing your Upper Intake Manifold I'd suggest getting the part # for the Series III aluminum manifold (available on 2004 Grand Prix'* -non supercharged-, or 2005+ Buick Lacrosse/Lucerne). They can be bought used for cheaper than a plastic unit new, but do require TB adapter (a good time to switch to a L67 TB if you decide to put higher ratio rocker arms or a cam in).

Your transmission is not (or at least it wasn't from the factory) a 4T65E-HD unit. You have the regular non-HD rendition of the 4T65E. I am going to guess you have the Lesabre Limited model with 16" rims if you hae the air suspension, so you more than likely have the 3.05 gearing vs. the granny edition 2.84 gearing. Best way to tell is to check your RPO code sheet on your spare tire cover for the code (I forget what the gearing codes are off-hand).

This topic is about what parts are compatible between the cars. Your Ride is for pics. If you haven't noticed, we strive to stay ON TOPIC. I suggest the person you're asking for pics post them in Introductions for New Members or Your Ride instead of cluttering this topic with stuff that doesn't have anything to do with what'* compatible. You've been here long enough to know how this works. Historically, the single biggest complaint on this Forum are off-topic posts.

As far as the FE2 swaybars are concerned, don't do it unless you upgrade your springs as well, or you'll have an imbalance in the car. And keep in mind that ELC is an INTEGRAL CALCULATED part of FE2 suspension.

That is NOT true. If he sees something he'* interested in, he needs to post it for compatibility. INTENSE doesn't have all the cross-markets listed.
that is true i checked the site and it has nothing listed for sabers
I agree with will. Just ask Intense and they reply super fast. A lot of what they offer will fit your car. I would ask about a PCM, it does not hut and the cost is right.

I'm just going to post since you havent had any responses.. some lowering springs and good struts... but I don't know squat about these cars so I don't even know if they make them for our cars, or if they make them for other cars that use the same setup as ours? I have no clue really...
