Default Help With Researching Suspension

I hope this is in the right forum seeing that most of my threads has been moved. Sorry, I thought it fit in that or this subject.

Anyway, I'm considering upgrading my SE suspension and I have spent a hour searching Bonneville Club archives for info on suspensions and I'm uneasy.

People say to get FE2 off a wrecked car or order from GM, well earlier I found this website that made a COMPLETE kit for front and rear and it looks good.

There'* a rear kit too
Any help would be a godsend.

Like i said before....you can get an SSEi rear bar for waaay less than that.....and do the front bar at the same time....a FE2 swap would be al;ot better than the FE1 on there now

You can get a brand new GM 32mm sway bar for $80ish... And then throw in the center links which you'll have to have, and have it shipped at an almost $80 savings if memory serves...

Lookk for a car with FE2 or F41 and you'll find the sway bars you want...

$180 what a ripoff

And even both swaybars are only 1/3 of the equation. The rest of it for a balanced ride is Struts/shocks, and springs.

I'm sure it was a ripoff, I'm very gullible so I decided to ask my family (which is Bonneville Club). I went to Autozone today and brought endlinks (Energy Suspension 9.8120R). I hope it'* the right one, I got the PN off an article that Willwren wrote and it said for all 92-99 cars so I assumed it included my 99 SE. I also saw swaybar bushings, the bushings that hold the sway bar to the car, I was wondering if anyone knew the PN for it so I can buy them too. They didn't have a part catalog available so I dont know what # to buy.
