Where are you getting your info from? Do you have other information on the C bodies? They used disk brakes, i would love to compare our suspension to theirs, and see what the differences are...
Your thinking of the G-Body park avenue (97+) the C-body park avenue was from 1991-1996 and had drums in the rear like the H-body.

Thats what I was thinking was the 91-96 C Bodies... Not the newer ones

Question... Is there a Part number for a sway bar link kit for the front sway bar end links? to bring it to FE2 specs? You have Front sway bush - HB1804, which I assume its the bushings in the middle of the bar.

The end links, the ones that connect to the lower control arm. Whats the best link kit to use for this?

Thanks!

Yes. Just you can get any Link kits from ant parts store. there all the same.

you dont need to buy Energy Suspension endlinks

Advance Auto Parts sells the HD ones that are just as good. and you wont have to wait for then to be shipped to your do. I also this there a few $ cheaper.

I can get monroe'* struts, however, where I work, we use Feferal mogul as our parts. Actually, we use parts from Auto Value, which includes Moog, Wagner, etc. So, the CC658 and cc653 springs moog has, should be the FE2 springs?

Also, we don't have TRW parts, we use moog and whatever else moog has for suspension. I used the computer to look up the parts, and i could not find these parts. Does anyone know the FE2 parts I can get from Federal mogul? Like the front inner sway bar bushings, and the back end links? These PN'* HB 1804 and 18152 parts are the ones i could not find.

Yes, you'll shift the vehicle more towards oversteer. It'll require a more advanced driver to control. That'* my suggested racing upgrade, But you may not be able to control the car in all conditions anymore. GM picked their combos for safety. If you're not full-time autocross/roadracing the car I don't suggest it for you.
