Do I have variable assist steering? 2004 Bonny
Ok, the car has over 200k on it, the front end is a little loose and the suspension is tired. Time to replace most of the suspension/steering in the front end, including the tie rod ends, struts and ball joints.
The problem is does my Bonny have variable assist steering? I would check the RPO code on the spare tire cover but a water leak in the trunk washed them away and kind of ruined the label. That was a few years ago, sealed up the taillights to fix that.
Car is a 2004 SE Bonny. It appears the tie rod ends are different for the assist and non-assist models.
Will the VIN tell me anything about this?
Is there an obvious difference in the rack or pump?
