We should come up with a "How do you know if you have 4WS" sticky, have pictures and other oddities that are with the 4WS model; like the power steering pump, rear steering rack, gas tank, lower cross member support, RSTB, wheels, steering wheel, etc.

It should really be painfully obvious if you have 4ws or not, if you know anything about anything about your car. (Or cars in general)




I dont think there is any difference between the power steering pumps in 4ws and non-4ws model.

Well 1st youd see it says 4WS on the steering wheel. And on the trunk. And has a RSTB.
the rstb came in all gt's as far as i know ...and your right about the steering wheel but i completly forgot about that.

90-92, or was it 91-92 GT's have the RSTB, not the 88-89 GT's, only 4WS of those years had the RSTB stock.

I would have thought the biggest giveaway to the average layman was the fact that the car felt different when turning, and that there's a 4WS light in the dash that lights up when you start the car. Not to mention the rack in plain view from behind :)
