    Struts and Shocks

    OK OK I'll beat the dead horse. I have A 99 ELdo base model FE1 suspension. I'm not looking to turn it into a race car just want alittle more stiffer, not so floaty ride. Throw all the input you can at me, I would much appreciate it!

    Re: Struts and Shocks

    Well you can see I'v been asking the same questions in this forum section but it's kinda/nearly dead in this section.

    My FE1 system is in still good working condition(knock on wood) & am seeking the same info to adapt FE3.
    I would rather not have the soft ride but I don't want to give up the RSS system.

    The sway bars frt & rear, then the front struts are the main FE1/FE3 part differences for my 96' model the 99' is has differences but easier to deal with regarding this.

    I haven't found solid info on the what all would need changing as far as the PCM/other body controller differences are.
    There are 4 or five modules on the rear seat back 1 of them is the main body/chassis control module. Steering, brakes, TC & drivetrain all work in concert to make this thing work.

    Passive struts can solve the ride problems but will handicap the rest system to a degree.
