I think you are correct for the most part... I don't think LTZs have police struts, but I believe the sway bars and trailing arms are GMPP and/or police level. Bilsteins would be awesome to find but good luck on that. I don't think the lateral links are any different between the models. I don't know if the weight of the 5.3 has anything to do with it, but Pontiac couldn't have their flagship GXP running around on average suspension pieces. Hell, Impalas always got better stuff than the Grand Prixs did. That said, there is still room for improvement on the cheap.

The GXP is a interesting one. The Impala and Monte Carlo, I think the Buick all use just standard suspension with the same size tires all around. The GXP on the other hand gets the Bilsteins and the front tires are wider then the rear. Which after hearing people on LS4 Nation is a pain in the ass since it limits tire rotation. I have the Impala SS and it handles pretty well. It doesn't handle to much different then the LT I had with the 3.5
