I got pricing from GMPartsDirect (GMPD) and they were a little better than GetSaturnParts. However I never have found a source that gives me actual part numbers for the Saturn, all my part number were from Cobalt sources. GMPD doesn't have a search tool for Saturn parts.

Is there any difference between the FE5 Cobalt and the Ion RL front suspension? If not, I'll get all the parts from GMPD.

I've attached a diagram from GetSaturnParts (trademotion)

The Ion RL suspension is the first revision of FE3. The Cobalt SS with the 2.4L (non-supercharged) had the second revision FE3, where as the Cobalt SS/SC has the first FE5 and the SS/TC has the second FE5.

Shocks: 10368516
Frt Springs: various, L/r different, (not shared wirth other RPOs)

Not exactly those numbers, but basically their equivalents except for the control arms, as although the Redline basically has a FE3 suspension, it does use stamp steel lower control arms, while the Cobalt FE3 uses aluminum, and the springs, as cobalt front springs and ion front springs are completely different diameters. Also all the strut mount and bearings are unique to the ion.
