Default Swaybars

Anyone reccomend a good manufacturer of swaybars for our bonnevilles? I can't seem to find a perfect match anywhere on the net.

I did find these, but obviously they're not matched to a Bonneville :(

you would feel a large difference if you just switched to the FE2 suspension, sway bars, springs and new end links.

Get Boneeville swaybars new or from the wrecker. SSEi bars are quite a bit bigger than yours, and all the brackets and links will fit.

Okay, summarize: Get FE2 Swaybars. Preferably off an SSEI. Wreckers are an issue for me where I live, as in they don't exist. But I will see about hunting it down.

This is the last upgrade I'm planning for the 94. I'm looking to be moving into a 95 SSEi for myself very shortly, but before I give the 94 to my wife, I'm changing the struts and I wanted to put better swaybars on it so her ride is super comfortable and she doesn't have to worry about too much roll when cornering. She'* intimidated by large cars. :P

Thanks everyone for your thoughts and suggestions.

I would be concerned with an imbalance from rear to front with that.

Yeah, at least in this case, it will be better to keep the factory-safe understeer balance.

It'* going to be a woman driving it after all...
