I don't recall ever reading this post, but it says the 4th generation has SLA.

It's def not a McPherson strut, they're structurally integral and turn with the wheels usually.

It is SLA. Look for an image of the front subframe freshly liberated from the car and you'll see the LCAs, UCAs, and spindles.

Another way to tell is to take the tire off and look for an upper ball joint.
