They're going to have different suspension stiffness, only the names will change. Instead of FE#...

Base - "Oh it feels like I'm riding on a cloud!"
RS - "Not too soft, not too harsh, daddy likes!"
SS - "No wheel hop, and it corners like it's on rails!"
Z28 - "WHOAH! I almost passed out in that last corner from the G force!"

Seriously, it's all speculation, but you can bet different models will have different susp. stiffness. You can turn the new Cadillac into a track eater with just a shock change. I'm guessing the Camaro will be similar.
