because FE2 is still WAY!!! better then FE1 wimpy soft ride crap

and from what iv seen the only difference far as F41 and FE2 in the rear is just the springs.


but anyhoo...

not i got to figure out what else i need far as mounts for the rear and front Struts.
I think im also going to replace the Control arm bushings at the same time.

nope...someone hasnt done there homework

the actual struts when the car was new had different valving if the car had F41 or FE2...

the front springs are different as well

in the Bonneville the F41 was never available with the ELC, but in the Buick'* it could have been optioned with ELC...

WHY would you want to controll the springs differently?? that really makes no sense as the car sould have the same amt of air on both sides... adding air to both sides at a different time is only asking for problems
