Because I have seen many testimonials and your book has given me a lot of knowledge about my car, not to mention your proven track record (oh that was puntastic) I see no reason why not to go with your product. It also helps that your parts are GMPP backed. Expect a call from me in December (my fiance wants an interchangeable lens camera, I feel this is reasonable lol)!
We'll be here and ready when you are!

Here is a first hand experience why I would recommend you go Pedders vs BMR....which is the same design as the Energy Suspension inserts. IMO it's worth the extra money for Pedders.

I must have been drinking eggnog when I created that

Unlike electronics we get hammered every year with higher petroleum and steel costs. We started an annual December Sale which was a courtesy to our clients and prospective clients. We raise prices January 1st so we announce the new pricing before Thanksgiving to allow buyers the opportunity to make their purchase prior to the price increase. This year we'll be increasing our prices about 4% across the board.

We may get in the holiday spirit, but it will not be rerun of last year's eggnog induced Christmas Story.

How does one know which suspension he/she has(FE3/FE4, etc..)?

I have a 2011 2SS for example. Is there a code in the VIN?

No codes, 2012 up is Fe4/5.

Here is some good reading, it's a lot but you will see about 3/4 the way down the page it starts talking about the different years.
