I am pretty good at getting information but I don't know what those codes mean. F codes used to be tied to suspension and handling packages . Must be a sign of me getting old because my son loves the CTS and me I still love the Deville. Explain and help will come your way.

Pretty good Katz.

FE1 soft
FE2 medium
FE3 Stiff

I don't know how you can tell by the window sticker, It probably depends on the various packages available as options. I think if you go to kbb and price one out it may tell you what suspension goes with which package.

Good Luck

FE1 soft
FE2 medium

i would describe it more like this:

FE1 = comfort
FE2 = enthusiast
FE3 = sport

I believe those would be the manufactures words, however it does sound like I was talking about mattresses and not suspensions.

Straight from the manufacturer's build sheet: "FE1 - Soft Ride Suspension" but I can't imagine seeing "Stiff Ride" listed, sort of sounds naughty. [sm=lildevil.gif]
