    question on options

    I had my 01 WS6 up on a lift and I noticed I have the aluminum driveshaft and the DeCarbon shocks. I thought those were ILE options. Is there an expert on options out there? I have the original sales brochure but it's no help.
    That thing is just as pretty underneath, what a car!

    Those are standard pieces.

    The aluminum driveshaft became standard in the late 1997/early 1998 model years (I think).

    DeCarbon shocks were standard on all 1993-2002 F-Body cars.

    I believe that all 1993-2002 1LE cars came with Koni shocks.

    The "1LE" option code should be present on the Service parts sticker, located on the driver side door.

    As I recall, it was a Formula only, limilted power options for light weight. I'll have to dig out my old brochures.

    Thanks for all the input!

    1LE was only available on Hard Top M6 Formula's `98-`00 and automatically prerequsited the WS6 option.
    It deleted all the power options and the Monsoon Stereo.
    After GM discontinued the 1LE option SLP made it available on Firehawk's and SS's in `01-02
