well, I was merely saying that I have not heard of it. That doesnt mean it doesnt exist.
Just my 2 cents. Also a thread bump might help get your post noticed.Someone may have heard of it. I wasnt trying to be flip .

Sounds like you should call a dealership's service department...

Soft ride suspension is the option name for the suspension RPO code FE1. It's used on any GM cars that have optional sport suspension packages to delineate the two options.

FE1 or Soft Ride suspension is the name for the base suspension option found on J-bodies, F-bodies, Y-bodies, etc.

Also there are 3 different rack and pinions , as I asked a parts guy ( a real one) . Each one has a different ratio , or turns of the wheel from lock to lock to put it simply. One is the standard ratio and there are 2 different ratios for "sport"
