    If you have a WS6 you already have the 1LE suspension. A ws6 comes stock with a front 32mm front solid swaybar, and a 20mm rear sway bar. I believe the rear springs are different. If you are talking about the SLP 1LE Level one suspension the main difference is in the spring/shock conbination. This is from memmory so I could be completely wrong.

    ok, actually its the following:
    21mm rear swat bar
    35mm front sway bar
    panhard bar w/ 1le bushings
    rr control arm w/ 1le bushings
    bilstien shocks struts w/ eibach progressive springs.

    hopefully that clears it up.
    so that a decent upgrade?

    It's a great upgrade in my opinion.

    This sounds like most of the 1LE package content that was installed on the 2000 and up 1LE SS & 1LE Firehawks from SLP. The one major difference is that true 1993-2002 1LE cars used adjustable Koni shocks.

    If your car is a 6-speed, there should also be a firmer transmission mount in the package (a polyurethane one will do, as GM & SLP no longer carry the original 1LE mounts).

    If you are going to put the 35mm front bar on, it is recommended that you use the reinforced front sway bar mounts that SLP sells. The stock brackets are too weak for that size bar (1993-1999 1LE cars came with 32mm front/19mm rear bars).

    Yes, That would be a nice upgrade, and definately a lot better than stock.
