That's fine, but every time this chart reappears verbatim, people start noting that the spring part numbers don't completely match up. IMO it should be amended to avoid further confusion.

The chart does match my ETIS info on my 2012 Titanium suspension, which, amazingly enough, is what this thread was started about way back when.....

It's more likely to correctly match up springs for Ti and S, since those are the extremes with regards to weight. It might not even be possible to have an NF on any Ti or an NG on an S.

Not so much for SE and SELs though. My SE Sport has NFs up front, however the chart lists NGs.

I believe mid-way through production of the 2012s, the SE Sport cars stopped getting "sport suspension." It wasn't listed in the Monroney under the 203A package for my November 2011 car. That said, I think the suspension is plenty sporty as-is.

Input your VIN into ETIS here, then expand the minor features tab. It will tell you what suspension you have.

BV61-5560-NF* Left Rear Coil Spring
BV61-5560-NF* Right Rr Coil Spring

Interesting. NFs all around for my 11/12 SE Sport.

Then again, ETIS says I have no outstanding field service actions, though according to the build date it qualifies for 12-5-5 (occasional hesitation).

Edit: I meant to say 11/11 build
