Impressions: It raised the rideheight by about 1" the entire way around. BUT the car is on RAILS....DAMN when you turn the wheel the car turns, there is much less body roll. There is no dipping down on stops/starts. Its even more impressive because the car is a little lighter than a GXP

I don't Know how I miss this. WOW! Lookin good Pat. How did the rear springs go. I just got mine wrestled back in place for the winter. Hope to have new set of air struts fabricated and solenoids rebuilt by spring. Till then I'm at normal ride height again.

Blame me (everyone does anyway).
I'm the one who was trying to help him out in his other thread to get the right parts. I originally used this thread to help me build my FE5 swap and get the things I needed. I just wanted to show him the differences.
Tad pushy.
I'm trying to help you out and you drag up a 2 year old thread demanding part numbers.
Look it up yourself. I already gave you the info from one source.

Geez. dh2

If he would read his other thread, he would have noticed I already put up a price for the front bar right from GMPD. Somewhere along the line he was looking at the ride & handling bar, which isn't the one he wants. Performance & Handling is the FE5 bar. GMPD has no part numbers on them though, they say to just reference the part as described in their catalog.

www.compnine.com is the best place to find part numbers for any make/model.

but IF you actually took the time to look at the picture of the bar IN this thread. You would see it has the part number on it.
