Welcome! You should post some questions in the Performance & Brainstorming section, and lots of knowledgeable people will be absolutely glad to help.

For now, your Olds LSS has the same chassis as the 92-99 Bonnevilles and LeSabres. It'* a GM H-body platform, and though not many things are available for the suspension, there are lots and lots of engine and transmission parts available because of the popular Grand Prix cars, W-bodies, that share our engine and transmission. Your mod list is fine, but you will have to tune your car if you polish the throttle body because the MAF sensor is built into it.

Enjoy your LSS, and again, welcome to the forum!

Thanks for the welcomes.

Thank you, for the point about the needed tune if the thb is polished. I might have to put that one off for awhile.

I'm planing on doing basic stuff before winter. I changed to 5w 30 syn. Sometime next week, changing the brake and coolant fluid.

I did try to source some gas struts.....limited selection indeed. The air leveling, limits the rear choice to sensa tracs. Good news for the fronts though. KYB has some part #23607 for a 119 each.

Phoned around for lowering springs.....everybody thought I was on crack. Might be a lot harder then I thought. The sway bars on this thing are huge. I'm not sure upgraded bars are called for. Just urethane bushings should be fine.

I was reading some threads, and noticed a few people had some good results with a rear stut bar.I will see what I can do. I will indeed post some questions in the correct forum as I go.

You should ask 95naSTA about the suspension...
