If you have the rear SLS (EHC I) you will have a metal dome over the compressor in the spare tire wheel well...and the spare sits atop the dome.

If you have chrome trim exterior trim, then you probably have the standard rear SLS (I guess this would be the "comfort") suspension. If you have shadowline trim, sport seats, and 3 spoke sport steering wheel (and any of the other things that indicate the sport pkg)...then you will have the sport-tuned rear SLS system.

If you have a switch on the dash to the left of the steering wheel that allows you to raise/lower the vehicle...then you have dual SLS (EHC II) system.

Some owners prefer to remove the SLS suspensions...but apparently you like it (as do I). I think it offers a great ride when working properly.
