While bonnies don't have macpherson struts in the rear like gps, you could still do something similar in the front. (I don't know that the 00+ have goining on in the rear)
I wonder if the rear shock towers would be able to handle all the load of the rear CAs...

I had a full coilover setup like that on my Ford Focus hatch, it rode over the bumps like ****, but it sure cornered on rails, NO body roll at all.

My friends maxima has coilovers and the ride is amazing.
Not too harsh on bumps, no pogo, and handles great.
I definitely want to try and do something similar when I get another bonnie.
