Default Shocks & Other Mods.

Are there rear coil over shocks for our cars and what can I do to beef up the front end? 1999 SE.

Go to the wrecker and get the springs and swaybars from an SSEi. It'll be cheaper.

I've added FE2 suspension parts from another Bville, best mod i've done to my car.

Get some performance Endlinks for this, by energy suspension. Someone around here will have a link for you.

I'm actually curious to see what only a rear sway bar upgrade would do to the ride of a car. It should push you towards understeer. If you only have time for one at a time do the rear sway bar first... It'* MUCH easier (about 1/3-1/4 of the time for the front) and much safer then running around with an upgraded front and stock rear.

I replaced the sway bars on my 2000 with heavier duty ones and gave the old rear one to someone with a 2000SE which doesn't have a rear bar. He said the difference was huge over stock.

Mark, where did you get heavier duty sway bars? Would they be restricted to 2000+?

00+ uses different bars. They won't fit.

I got mine from www.sanerperffab.com. Their web site used to show mostly import stuff but you can e-mail them to see what they might have.

Those particular bars won't fit a 99 or older.

Not that I'm aware of, but frankly, if the rest of your components are in good condition, you don't need more. My car rails like no other car I've ever owned or driven.
