suspension upgrade

I own a '87 Olds Cutlass Salon. I was wondering how to upgrade to the 4-4-2 suspension package without finding another 4-4-2. If u have any suggestions feel free to respond. Thank You!

Summit lists a bunch of parts like stiffer springs, big sway bars, complete urethane bushing packages, etc. for a lot of GM chassis like A-body, G-body, etc. I don't know what a 442 would be classified as - never studied up on the letter chassis series but it should fall in maybe the A-body (GTO, Cutlass, Skylark)?

Anyway, even if your car isn't covered in their catalog, they can provide a bunch of parts not listed thee. Give their tech line a call - they are great to work with and you always talk directly to a real AMERICAN human!! 1-800-230-3030.

Willys was on the right track but had the wrong letter... The Cutlass is a "G" body. Monte Carlo's, Regals and Grand Prix's are all the same. You can use aftermarket suspensions parts from any of these lines to upgrade your Cutlass even better then a 442.
Do a search online for Hi-performance G body suspensions. Polyurethane bushings, springs, sway bars and even complete suspensions are available...
