It'* for a W-Body, but I've never seen those kind of STB'* for GP'*. You have an H-Body chassis.

Looks kinda wimpy if you ask me... A stock 92-99 will be stiffer then that I bet, atleast near the edges.

Yea, looks really weak, and cheap. The GMPP strut bar looks far stronger than that thing.

you are feeling the front of the car lift, nothing to do with the strut bar. its the air that is going over the front of the car. the only way to solce this problem is to install a SSE/SSEi front bumper (not an easy task). It has more of a downforce effect in the front than a SE struts are another thing to look at

you really dont even need to do that because there are not many times that you are at 105 or higher

Your bumper isn't the problem, your problem is a weak sway bar, and/or shot endlinks/bushings.

Replacing the endlink bushings with some poly urethane bushings, will help turning alot, replacing sway bars will make it a different machine.

Aerodynamics have somewhat of a factor at those speeds, but if your suspension isn't in good shape, it'* going to feel like its floating. I drove 2 hours on the freeway with a broken front sway bar when I was going home from school. I averaged about 75 mph, and it was constantly 'floating' the whole way back. I had to make lane changes very slowly or it felt unstable.
