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
ok yup, but that just makes it hard to find then and most pricey right?

Far as the Struts being controlled differently, im not going to have diffrent PSi in them, i just dont want the air to be able to travel from one side to the other when you corner hard, i want the pressure to stay the same all the way around no matter what im doing.

Yup, makes them pricier.

I'm not sure how the stock system is connected, But it'* true that that w2ould be the worst setup. Maybe some sort of one-way valve setup?

Pat WTF are you talking about... You put air in a line that goes to the AIR leveling strut. And the line goes from one strut to the other one. There is nothing stopping the sir from going fom one strut to the other between he lines

when you put pressure on one strut it presses down on the AIR leveling and the air wants to come out, if the air has a place to go (IE. the other strut that now has less pressure on it) it will go to it.

Now if you have to lines and the sir can not go anywhere the pressure will all stay in that one sides lines and strut. it will help keep the car more level.




Anyway.

Looks like the rear sway is 18mm and the front is 32mm




The front i could easily tell it was 32, but the rear was a bit hard to i took a pic so my eyes would not trick me. and the tag is still on it

Okay, that'll work fine, but with the front setup like that the car will push hard. Do the rear first like you're planning and see if you think you'd like the car to go straight more.

Keep the stock sway bar. Go with the rest of your plan.
