Default Larger sway bars, energy susp bushngs, etc...

Anyways, my base model SE is just FE1 equipped. You can imagine how it handles. I would like this car to handle much better, so I am looking for larger sway bars. I know you can upgrade to FE2, but was there ever an option for FE3? What suspension setup do the GXP'* have?

Also, while I am adding/upgrading swaybars, I would like to go ahead and upgrade the swaybar bushings. If anyone has done this, what PN do I need? If it hasn't been done, then I will just take my micrometer to the swaybar and head to the parts store to find the appropriate ones.

I already have the Caddy front STB that I still need to modify to fit, but that won't take long Is there a rear STB available, or am I just gonna have to go custom?

Thanks!

Not sure on much of what you are asking..

On sway bars.. Call Ed Morad..he'* probably got them for you.
end links...I think the same kits work for 92=05.

Basically, I was asking if there are any larger bars than FE2, and if there is, whats the part numbers.

Then I was asking if anyone was using the Energy Suspension Poly bushings, and if so, which PN'* were in use.

Sorry if I made it sound confusing.

This section is for discussing mechanical problems, not Performance upgrades.

I'll move your topic for you.

So, according to Addco'* website:

Front PN: 02018
Rear PN: 02015

But... they are listing that as a 97-01 Bonneville, which doesn't seem right to me. Anyone have any input on this?

Not sure. Whats the diameter of the FE1, FE2, and FE3 bars?

The front Addco bar is 1.25" diameter, the rear bar is 7/8" diameter.
