hey, i had a couple questions on how close some of the N-bodies really are. I know the GAGT has better "sport" suspension- now i have a 99 SE, the ride quality is **pretty** good, but it doesnt turn, go over bumps or handle quite as well as my moms 99 alero GLS, is it just cause Olds' build quality might be slightly better or do they throw the upgraded GT suspension in there since they're both top of the line models?(her car also has the variable-effort steering, mine doesnt) also, does the 3400 in the alero have the 3.29 axle like the GAGT or 3.05? seems like that car has a lot more punch down low, that due to the 3.4 having more torque or is the tranny different? if i remember right(correct me if im wrong, and ive seen different answers) but the 99+ 2.4 SE(my car) has the 4T40e, 3.05:1. the GAGT has the 4t45e, 3.29:1. alero too or no? i think somebody mightve even said GAGT has a 4t60e. hmm..yeah thats all for now. oh my buddy has a 98 malibu, that car is nice, drives as well as the olds.
