Ive done some research,

so far i have solved 1/3 of the puzzle

The rear lower control arms are the same
The front upper strut mounts are the same

so, i know that the top of the front will fit, and the bottom of the rear.. i would assume that if the top fits, then the bottom would, and vice-versa

Now, my biggest question would be length..

It looks like im on a fast-track to havign the first lowered (via springs) 2000+ bonneville

One other thing I'd be worried about besides dimension is the lb rating.
Say the arse or front end of the caddy is way heavier than the bonnie.. What may make for a nice even drop in the caddy may be thrown off on the bonnie.
But they very well could be close so who knows.
Keep at it, it seems like you almost there.
