Mike,

We torqued the front sway bar while in the air....

And you do not Need that isolator bushing at the bottom....We were doing some testing with Buick vs Monte SS isolators...

Likes the Dse stuff.but how much better would it handle with the spline swaybar on the Buick..and do they make it for the Buick?
DSE does not make a splined sway bar for the Buick Regal's or any other g-body.... The Only difference between a spline sway bar and a normal one is the spline sway bar will allow you to run a wider tire due to the flat style bar usually used and you can easily swap out a different splined bar when you wish to change the "rate" of the bar.

Scott,


Questions:
1.Any thoughts on offering a shorter DSE shock to avoid loosing a spring when jacking up the car and having that extra suspension travel?
2. Do you offer any spacer or perch adapter to raise the rear height about .75 -1 inch. I love the way the car handles with the dse springs and shocks all the way around but the rear to me looks likes its about .75 inches lower than the front

You should be able to use SPC spacers like I have shown in this thread on the rear if you wanted to raise it.:
