Default Shocks/Struts

Ok, are the struts on a Bonneville SSEi different than the ones say on a N/A engine car? I was just wondering to see if maybe there is a firmer ride or something. If so was wondering if I could buy SSEi struts rather than teh stock SSE'* for my car. Thanks in advance!

im pretty sure both the SSE and the SSEi come from the factory with "sport suspension" or somethin like that that is firmer than say the SE. check your RPO codes on your spare tire cover and compare them with the ones in http://bonnevilleclub.com/techinfo/?article=54 look for either FE1 2 or 3 on your RPO codes label and then see which one youve got. sorry if i sound confusing.cause i know if i read this it would confuse me.

The firmer suspensions have stiffer springs, larger stabilization bars, and stronger links. But I'm not sure that the struts are different, at least not on the 93.
