I do believe that is the "Computer Command Ride", in other words, the load-leveling air-suspension with the selectable "Normal" and "Performance" ride. If you look next to your shifter, you'll see the buttons for it.
Try doing a search for "RPO codes" and look for the list.

Well, scratch that...
Are you sure you have the original spare cover there?

some one might have dissabled the ccr and replaced the switch with a non ccr one. Are the plastic strut covers under the hood slotted?

I think it may have something to do with the process in which they select a spring. It'* tested to be in the proper stiffness range, etc...

John is right. It is NOT CCR or ELC.

The springs are computer selected to match the rates between the left and right, front and rear for a balanced handling package. There are many different combinations possible. Even within the FE1 or FE2 classes of components, there can be as many as 5 distinct spring diameters and rates. The computer selects a combination of 4 springs that will perform well in an H body.

All Bonnevilles have this RPO code, or should.
