Honestly, no clue. I didnt put the suspension on the car. one of the PO did. If I had to guess I would say na, is there any telltale signs? a quick search didnt tell me anything telltale about what I have.

This is a great thread, answering many questions for me. Thanks for all the thorough responses guys.

Thought I'd link this thread and pic over for reference since we're in the NA/NB tophat subject at this point.

Yeah for sure lol. NB hats and some sway bars are my next suspension mods, so this thread is rather helpful.

Then I have a bit of help for you. If you switch to NB tophats, you can have more bump clearance at the same ride height since you already have coilovers. The NB tophats raise the top spring perch, typically lowering a car. But if you use your coilover adjusters to bring you back up to the same ride height you started at, you will gain about 3/4 inch or so more space between the top of your shock body and the bumpstop. That is 3/4 inch more free travel. You can also switch to shorter bumstops or cut the stock one's bottom-most segment off while you are in there, which could give you another half to 3/4 inch. How's that?

Thats also a nice plan. I have already raised the car a half inch. debating more honestly. But for now, Im going to see where the handling stands in February, If everything is a lot better than it was, then I will probably buy some nb tophats and get the car a bit lower. Im going to wait for now and see where shes at.
