~ RPO Z51 included B4P, FG3, KC4, V01, 16x9.5-inch wheels, heavy-duty suspension, fast steering ratio. Coupes and manual transmissions only.

Does that help any, BigRed?

Okay thats what I mean my car handles WAY harder than my Dad's did (he had a 84) But I also realize that having 9.5's on the front will tend to do that

AND mines a coupe AND mines a manual AND I bought it with aftermarket...16' wheels

I really need to know if theres a serial # way of figuring this thing out but I sure appreciate the help ken

(By the way I don't fully understand B4P FG3 KC4 and V01 are those serial Id's?)

Big,
Not sure how the set up is on an '85, but on a '96 the RPO #'s are listed under the "storage box" lid (in the cargo deck area). Also, the build sheet should be up above the gas tank.
Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Greg

Z51 or Z52

BIGRED,

You can tell the type of suspension by your steering wheel turns.
Z51 is 2 or 2 1/4 complete turns of the steering wheel. the Z52 is 2 3/4 complete turns. This should help you some in determining what you've got.


:w Good Luck!
