Crystal stated "The SE sports package doesn't modify the suspension; it'll be the same as the other 2012 SE models." That is NOT entirely accurate. Yes, the front is still a MacPherson strut and the rear is still a Control Blade. No, the springs and dampers are not the same. The accuracy of that chart is not really the issue here, the point was that the suspension components (springs/dampers) are indeed different over the model line.
