Default GMPP Handling Kit.....*grin*

I love it! hahahahaha

Me and my dad installed the new front swaybar today, its a 34mm, stock is....28 i believe.

I installed the new rear swaybar, which is 19mm, stock is either 16 or 17..never really confirmed that...

anyway after i did that, i didnt feel like putting on the trailing arms or strut tower brace so i took 'er for a drive....omg....its a totally different car! its so much more...well...stable! and just seems so much more well mannered even in non-aggressive driving, really well worth the money, i just finished one trailing arm about 30 mins ago, in the dark with a light, and decided the other one could wait till tomorrow...cant wait to see what a difference those make!

I wish there was a kit like this for the H-body, but sadly there isnt....anyway just thought id share! and for anyone here with a W-body I highly recommend this mod, as well as the 12 inch rotors, the 2 best and most noticeable mods ive done so far, aside from tint.

well technically i went from FE1 to either 9C1 or 9C6...not sure which, those are both designations for the Police/Taxi suspension, which I would assume to be basically the same as what I ordered, the part #* are different though, so it makes me wonder.

This is the kit i got btw http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/results...ber=pk12456148

Bandit looks like there are a couple different swaybar options for you.

I would assume you have the tubular stock sway bar, so you could upgrade to:

a bigger one...part # 14081409

or a solid one...14081408

the only other part # is 14081407 which i would assume to be what you have now.

The first one is $100.22 shipped....im sure you could grab a junker MUCH cheaper.[/url]

The GMPP kit is very nice. These cars definately need it. I'm thinking about getting this kit for mine as well....

I would like to compare the sway bars on the Monte to the ones in this kit because it came stock with tubular trailing arms so I'm wondering about the sway bars as well....

Well as you may have seen, GMPD doesnt list either the front or rear stabilizer bar for the 2004 MC.

But they do list the bushings, of which there are 3.

10285683

10284149 "Green"....according to GMPD this one is used on the Intrigue, GP, and Regal w/FE3?( that doesnt make sense)....and my stock bushings were not green just so you know.

10287711 "Yellow"...apparently featured only on the MC and Impala with soft ride handling

In addition, requested a part # for the bushings for use with the Impala police package and received this part # in reply:

10275555 SEO police package option front stabilizer shaft insulator, blue, to
engine cradle.

I may have the part #* and stuff for the bushings that came with this kit, so we can cross reference, ill go look and see if the papers are outside somewhere.

EDIT: I found the little packing list that came with each piece, the part # for the bushings that i received in this kit is...10275555...so its the same as the Police package mentioned above....i would also mention that the bushings were not blue....so thats weird stuff.
