I was pretty surprised today. I was super bored after school so i decided to go do a few runs. I took lots of turns pretty fast and noticed that my suspension doesnt seem slouchy or soft at all. maybe this is just me im not sure

Are you still running on the original factory struts - that is, waht struts do you have in there (maybe you know maybe not) and have you ever replaced them - and if so with what.

Did you modify sway bars - how thick is your front sway bar?

Please tell us.

well I have done no work to suspension other than heavy duty sway bar end links. as to what the previous owner did i really don't know. I'll look at the struts and sway bars and see what I can come up with

Supposedly Buick used some sort of trick struts, in manufacturing, that got stiffer in turns. But I have no proof.
