Default RPO code question

Is FE2 the performance suspension, or is F41?
This is on the '95 SSEi.

FE2 - suspension, ride and handling

F41 - Suspension system, front/rear, firm ride & handling

The F41 has stiffer springs, but the cars use the same Sway bars. I think that Will has FE2 that are only .2mm off of the F41 thickness. So you could have a FE2 that is realllllly close to the F41

More to springs then thickness of coils.....

Each suspension level has quite a few different spring rates. I'm sure the lower extreme of F41 is close to the upper extreme of FE2. IMO the FE2 I have on my car are just right.

Also keep in mind that the FE2 suspensions also used the Rear Air struts, where as the F41 suspensions did not... So there are some diffrences in ride...

But as Jason stated there are several diffrent categories for each package... in some cases FE2 and F41 actually fall into the same category... But there are 3 to 4 diffrent levels...

Jason you ever replace those struts? I'll bet they would make a nice diffrence as you have all of the FE2 components..
