Suspension Related Items / Shock Replacment
« Last post by august2021 on July 12, 2021, 10:43:41 PM »
I am just looking for a little advice.  I have a 2001 stock Firebird and need to replace the shocks.  She’s no longer my daily but I want a quality brand.  Any ideas?
Thank you!

My ‘94 Firebird’s left headlight is making a grinding noise when going down. Now it does not work at all. Is it the plastic gear that has worn out?

My friend who has a 2003 Corvette and gave me a brass gear. Does anyone know if these gears are compatible?

I use the Bilstein model B6 shock on my ram air LS1 Trans Am and I am very happy with them.
Great product.

The bolts are supposed to have knurls on them and press into the frame  Maybe the bolts are worn out. If anything, I would tack some metal back into the frame and then hammer the bolts back in and let the narrows grab the new weld. Do not weld the bolts in.

I have seen a few PHS slips come back with custom options that would have been done at the factory, but never a shaker delete. Considering it’s had body work done and not knowing what happened before the previous owner had it, it’s all speculation as to the motive. It is possible someone popped a VIN and body tag on a Firebird body, but doubtful.

And the PHS wasn’t a waste but rather further validation that the VIN matches the options found on the car, eluding to it being a real ‘70 TA 4 speed car.

Enjoy it!

It is not as big of a deal as you may think. It can get expensive if you pick the wrong shop or do not have the ability to do it yourself.

You do have to change cross member from a V6 to an LS. It is the perfect time to upgrade to a performance one if the budget permits. Also not cost effective to go LS1 unless you find a deal. You can find a 4.8 or 5.3 for a lot less.
Have you considered mods on your V6? Depending on the shop that does it, you’re looking at between 6 and $10K..

Look for RPO Y82 on the SPID sticker on your center console lid.

I have the same year WS6 and I found this website: www.transamworld.com, Search on 4th generation history, and 4th numbers breakdown.

You can search the features. Snap a picture of your vehicle decal inside door panel to match up the numbers, not the vin #
