Option code 456

Just purchased an '86 coupe and was wondering if someone could describe what's meant by 'Sport Shocks and stabilizer' as referrenced by the option code 456?
thanks.

Aren't they adjustable shocks?
I have this option as well, but my fronts are coil overs (obviously not stock), the rears are koni yellows, but a little soft in really hairy stuff, can't I unbolt them, and tighten them up?

Koni Yellows / Sport Suspension is option code 474.

Not sure what 456 is: the sources I have do not have that listed.

Do you have yellow colored shocks on your car?

http://www.cantonia.com/option_codes.html
http://www.geocities.com/MotorCity/3322/spec.htm

Both of these list the Option code 456 as Sport Shock Absorbers and Stabilizers and Option code 474 as only Sport Shock Absorbers.

I guess the only way to be sure is to get a wheel off and get in there for a proper look?
