Glued to the top of your spare tire cover you should find a build sheet with the RPO codes specific to your car. RPO means regular production option, I think. In Techinfo you will find a list of RPO codes and what they represent. From this you may be able to determine which steering option you have.

From the RPO list in techinfo, I found:
NV8 - steering, magnetic speed, variable assist
T2V - steering, two flow electronic
