Default How do I know if my car has air ride suspension?

All:

Recently purchased a '98 SE and haven't had time to crawl underneath it yet. I was looking a getting new struts and am leaning towards the Monroe Sensatracs........but need to know if my car has the air ride set up. Is there a option code that I can look for on my spare tire cover?

Thanks

Being an SE model, I doubt it. It should have a FE1 code on the RPO list. FE2 is the air irde with ELC.

Look at your struts. If there is a line connected to the top of them, that would be the air line for the leveling/ride control system.

Look in your trunk, passenger side way up in the front. Look for this.
