I'm going to have to disagree with you Hector.
While the 98-2002 trans am didn't have the best handling in the world, it was actually decent for what it was.
I've driven a handful and even the stock ones aren't terrible as you describe.
They even offered a bilstein suspension.
Here's a sample review where they praise the handling:
They actually say the 98 and 99 firebirds had a suspension that was too rough but had a "precise" ride.
.87 G's and a 65 mph slalom isn't bad for the 90's either...
