Default FE1 or FE2 suspension??

Things kinda got off track on harofreak00'* topic for intakes so i brought my question here.... which suspension do i have, i have hit the speed limiter at 106 a few times and also i do not have the performance/touring suspension modes. So does this mean i have the FE1 suspension?? Thanks for any input...

Tires from the factory are why on SEs and some SSE.

You're limited in 3rd gear there. If you drop it into OD, (4th essentially) you can get past the rev limiter on your way to a fast 128. Make sure EVERYTHING is in tip top shape if you go that fast.

Suspension has nothing to do with your factory speed limiter. It'* all tires.
But for the most part, you want a firmer suspension at the higher speeds. Even the tires within a specific speed rating can make a huge difference in stability.

To be honest, with my 'stupidity' at high speeds, I wish my car was 1" lower, with an "FE-BRICK" suspension.
