I ran my 95 RMW with the towing package and here is what I have found.
1. I do have a sungate windshield, but see no RPO listed on compnine or on my SPID for it
2. I have the Grand Touring plaque on my dash
3. Codes I do have:
V92-TRAILER PROVISIONS TRLR PROVISIONS
6TM, 7TM-COMPONENT-COMPUTER SELECTED SUSPENSION SUSP
8RN, 9RN-COMPONET-COMPUTER SELECTED SUSPENSION SUSP
F40-SUSPENSION,HEAVY DUTY,FRONT AND REAR HVY DUTY SUSP
GW9-AXLE,REAR,2.93 RATIO 2.93R
G67-LEVEL CONTROL,AUTO AIR AUTO AIR LVL CONT
G80-AXLE,REAR,POSITRACTION,LIMITED SLIP POSITRACTION L/SLIP R/AXL
JA2-BRAKE SYSTEM,HEAVY WEIGHT,DISC,DRUM HVY WT BRK SYS
JM4-BRAKE SYSTEM,POWER FRONT DISC,REAR DRUM,ANTI-LOCK(CAST IRON) ANTILOCK DISC/DRUM BRK
KC4-COOLING SYSTEM,ENGINE OIL ENG OIL CLG
KD1-COOLING SYSTEM,TRANSMISSION OIL TRANS OIL CLG

I beleive that is all I have regarding the trailer stuff, hope that helps someone

Darn the 8RP 9RP vs. 8RN 9RN thing isn't it. Only '94 RMW's had two different ones offered. (the RP and RN ones) Production numbers were split between about half of the cars. All '95s and '96s had the 8RN-9RN suspension RPOs. Must have just been some running change during the '94 model year.

You may be onto some sort of explanation.

Have we seen any '95 or '96 RMW's with Dynaride & RN spring codes?

If not, and we take the '94 plaque assignments as currently suspect, then it would still hold.

We still could use more input on this and the Sungate questions. So everyone feel free to up their post count with some information that is actually relevant to the forum for a change.

All '95 and '96 RMWs have the RN suspension PRO codes, with the exception of I believe 2 '95 wagons which had a completely different code (not RP either). So we're barking up the wrong tree with this spring code thing. I'm willing to conclude that the Gran Touring Suspension plaque should designate V92 towing package, but that for '94 at least, the right badges didn't get on the right cars all the time. As far as the Sungate thing goes, does anyone have any other brochures to reference for '94 to '96? If all three years brochure claim it to be standard then I'm going with that. Also, if anyone has a '94 to '96 RMW without a tow pack and it has a Sungate, and no A23 RPO then I would also then conclude the Sungate was standard.

Ok, the black 94 is a non tow pack with a Sungate and no A23 RPO.
Do I win anything?

My 92 didn't have a separate RPO for Sungate. GPS worked fine through it, btw. Didn't bother with the radar detector, though.

Is there any correlation between "LEVEL CONTROL,AUTO AIR AUTO AIR LVL CONT(G67)" and the Gran Touring suspension badge?

Yes, for the timely sharing of requested information you & David get the admiration & appreciation of the entire forum.

Well, some of us anyway.

My RMW has the RN spring codes and the windshield has been replaced with a Safelite model. It has the DW1275 & "Solar Shaded" markings, but not the distinctive color of the PPG units.

Further checking indicates that the model number can change manufacturer-to-manufacturer and isn't necessarily consistent.

Bueller?

Anyone?

I talked to a friend of mine today who is in the auto glass industry. He says that the industry generally uses the PPG DOT numbers as a standardized cross-reference and often marks their windshields with the PPG number (they will also have their own DOT code elsewhere).

DW1274 is the PPG DOT code for the regular windshield and DW1275 is the PPG code for the sunshade version. Some manufacturers may be using the DW1275 code for the cross reference on the basis of fitment rather than technology, so don't trust that unless it's a PPG made windshield.

You get a gold star. Pretty sure that settles the Sungate thing. Sounds like it was standard equipment then.

Just to clarify the air ride was part of the tow package on the LT1 Caprice wagons as well, right?

I heard at least on the 94s they slapped those plaques on willy nilly and they don't mean much (read that on ISSF a couple years back before the GDL 2K9)
I'm starting to believe that... I think the Gran Touring suspension usually means tow pack, but I'm seeing Dynaride badged cars with the same exact stuff so yeah...
My 94 RMW tow pak equiped car has a Dynaride plaque too. As a GM retiree with 10 years in the material department I can tell you that if there was any shortage of the correctly badged IP bezel they would have put another one on in its place to keep the line moving in a heart beat, and by any shortage I mean the manufacturer had problems keeping up with production, the truck delivering it was stuck in traffic or broke down, (this was not too long after GM started using the "just in time" delivery system) or if the fork lift driver was off getting parts for some one else, the line operator would have been told to just grab the correct colored one with the different badge.

Makes sense. My tow-pack car has the Gran Touring plaque.
