Default Hello from abuseddog

I recently purchased a1997 olds LSS.

I was looking to do some basic mods. Urethane bushings, gas struts and maybe some stiffer / lowering springs and some wider rims.

I have been poking around a little and found that ported stock manifolds might be on the agenda as well as some ngk plugs the blue top coils. A cold air intake and perhaps a poished throttle body.

Picked up some urethane sway bar body mounts....33mm front and 21 for the back. Does that sound right? They do not have the back bar in ureathane, an odd ball configuration. Might have to make some out of hockey pucks

I do have a question or 2. What platform has common parts the lesabre/bonne or the bigger cars such as the caddies and the auroura?

Enough for now....back tosnooping around.

Welcome to the forum!! Nice car!

as far can use some parts off of the Park Ave works for some things, the caddy'* for others. you'd be surprised how many parts can go between the cars.

Welcome to the forum, looks great! Side note: I thought the Bonne had more in common with the Park Ave. than the LeSabre?
