Wow you got that for a steal. All the SII LeSabre'* around here (the FEW that there are) constantly go for $3000+. Good purchase! That'* my favorite LeSabre style, too bad they only used the SII one year before going to the uglier IMO ones.

Saturday I might go junkyarding to see if there are any fuel doors that'll work for cheaper than GMpartsdirect.com (I know, it'* a measly $30, but I'm as cheap as they get. And I love junkyarding). I also want to check out what other rear view mirrors they might have. It'* got the auto dimming mirror, but no compass or homelink features.
If you find an SSE 89-91 Get the front sway bar and all the links... If you find an 92-99 SSE get the Front and rear sways with all of the links... You'll love yourself for it later

Nice Loaded LeSabre too

Would that be FE2 or FE3? Would it compromise the highway ride, or just improve the cornering?

Alec_b: I too think that the body tweaks that they did in the '97 made it look a bit less substantial, and a bit more feminine. As for them being somewhat hard to come by, there'* two in our family now. mkaake has got a blue '96 Custom, and he'* my bro-in-law.

FE2,FE3 or F41 H Body will work... It won't rally stiffen the overall ride, but being that the bars are stiffer, you will notice more of the imperfections on the road as the bars do their job of controlling wheel wander/body sway... Its an overall improvement, you'll love it at off ramps, or if you are in an emergency where you have to react... Down the road better tires will also aid that..

I will have to look for that, depending on what they charge for such things. It does have a little bit of body roll as it is.

Don't worry, give her what you got, mash that pedal. Watch as that tach screems towards that 6000 rpm redline.
