I owned an 84 that I purchased new. I don't believe there was such an option in that year. I could be wrong as it's been a long long time but that car had a pretty rough suspension on it already. I think that the performance suspensions were made optional in the later years that the car went through softening changes due to complaints about the ride.

I think the suspension is different on the Grand sport.

Ok. I looked it up for you. There was indeed a Z-51 performance suspension system. Not many sold but they were available. There was no Grand Sport model in 1984. As far as knowing what your car has, get the VIN and go here: https://store.corvettemuseum.com/services/buildsheet.asp It'll cost a few bucks but probably worth it for you.
