Unstable Suspension

I RECENTLY BOUGHT A 99 SATURN COUPE WITH 45K MILES IN
EXCELLENT SHAPE. YOU WOULD EXPECT A SPORTY COUPE TO
HAVE A STIFFER SUSPENSION THAN THIS CAR DOES. ON
BUMPY ROADS, SOMETIMES THERE IS SO MUCH AGITATION IT IS
HARD TO SHIFT AND ACCELERATE SMOOTHLY. I'D LIKE TO KNOW
IF ANYTHING CAN BE DONE TO ADD STABILITY. THERE ARE SOME
PRODUCTS LISTED AT JCWHITNEY.COM THAT CLAIM TO ADDRESS
THIS PROBLEM. PRICE RANGE IS WIDE. I'D LIKE TO KNOW IF
ANY OF THESE PRODUCTS REALLY WORK.

Please kill the caps. No need to shout

There are numerous parts for Saturns. You might try the Saturn newsgroup on the Internet which surely has guys that have done mods to their suspensions to achieve better handling.

My .02: Suspension mods on a street car look hokey and aren't worth the effort. They cause more problems than what's it's worth.

The Saturn is a relatively cheapo sports coupe, and it's good at what is does, but a handling maven it is surely not.
