little note about the rear springs, i really looked closely at the springs before i put them on, the coil diameter was exactly the same...now it gets interesting....there were 8 coils that made up the FE1 but only 7 that mnade up the FE2......both of my springs measured in at 15mm

Hell yeah, good luck with the dash, if you don't put EVERY bolt back in you will know it with the rattles. Can't wait to see it completed.

Do the stickers on the springs correspond to the RPO codes for the suspension?

Your original rear sway looks like the bar on my parents' 92 Olds 88. I can bend it with one hand...

Nice pics pat...

The rear coil springs from the SSEi have roughly a 1200lb load rating as opposed to the 860 of the FE1 spring...

The SSEi spring also has a 10.5 " install heigth if memory serves...

Either way all of these items you will install will turn the SLE into a handler
