I read somewhere that we can use the Pontiac Montana dogbones. Did the Montana come with a 3.8 and can I use them ? I'm under the premise that they would be good since they are shorter. Thanks.

I think the Montana only came with the 3.4.

You can use Montana dog bones, but I wouldn't unless you have a good reason to do so (I.E. you are lowered and need to counteract the altered C/V geometry) because they will put extra stress on your lower motor and trans mounts.

Also your airbox won't fit right if you still have one on there. As Iffy said there's no point with stock suspension.
