Albert, welcome aboard! Tell us what front susp changes you've made. Many of us have added a Caddy STS strut tower brace, KYB GR2's, and some have begun installing their front and rear Addco sway bars, with good results.

PostSubject: a few details   new member EmptySun Jun 03, 2007 10:57 pm

I replaced front struts with Gabriel VSTs a while back. Car actually felt smaller, but fixed my problem. I live in a rural area, southern tier of western NY state. The roads outside the cities (Elmira, Corning) tend to be pretty smpooth but undulating - so at rural hiway speeds the riv tended to bob like a bass boat in the atlantic and passengers would get a littel queasy. Not Any More.

Strut tower brace and Addco sway bars? maybe. My riv came with fairly lage sway bars. Drive it a lot but don't drive it all that hard - not sure the tower brack will help me break the fun barrier, so maybe not.

I'll post a pic in the showroom before too long. However - the car is bone stock except for the front suspension, and a Corvette oil cap (running joke between me and the service manager at the local Buick dealer - gave me a Mobil1 decal).

I'll look around for info on the Addcos.

Both of mine are "bone stock" post pics anyway, always good to see another Riv. clap
