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

if it has 17 inch wheels, its an FE1
18 inch wheels, its an FE2
18 inch wheels and if it also says Sport Suspension, its FE3

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]
