FE1.....FE6?

Ok, so maybe this is a noob questions but what if the difference between all these FE suspension call outs?

FE2
FE3
FE4
FE6 (1LE?)

The V6 has FE2. As for the difference I know the major difference between FE2 and FE3 are the sway bars, Springs and struts. FE4 introduced the new outboard mounted rear sway bar and the FE6 has FE4 components with different Springs, Struts, and a few other parts.

I am sure someone else will chime in with things that I might have forgotten or got wrong.

FE2=V6
FE3=2010-early 2012 SS
FE4=mid 2012 to current SS
FE5=ZL1
FE6=1LE

All FE 4/5/6 lower control arms are the same with outward mounting locations and the difference is the size of the front and rear sway bars, shocks/struts, and the ZL1 having mag ride.

FE6 also has stiffer cradle bushings that really help.

JDP,
Isn't the rear shock mounts for the 1LE stiffer to compliment the mono-tube shocks???
