No, the code simply is defined (forgot the RPO digits) as 'Computer Selected Suspension".

It simply means that all 4 springs were measured and selected by a computer as a matched set. You must measure to see what you have. One of the things on my list to do

The swaybar link will give you the handling you wouldn't think possible, the springs do more to make the ride better in an earlier SE. Stiffening up the suspension like mad isn't the optimum way to reduce body roll, and tighten 'her up in the corners.

That being said, frankly the FE1 springs were too soft. Atleast with my (blown) struts the car wouldn't react quick enough.

Fantastic i always consisdered most of lakeville'* roads to be great, where'd you hit it?

Highway 5 going under the 35 overpass. I think a plow might have torn up the road. It extended across the whole lane. I had cars to my right and the guard rail to my left. It was unavoidable and shattered my front left strut tower.
