Suspension / Re: Front & Rear Spring advice
« Last post by 78w72 on Today at 02:44:28 PM »
its a crap shoot trying to get stock replacement springs that will sit at exactly the same stock height.  will probably require installing them to check height then removing them to cut for the height you want & reinstalling. 

ive seen quite a few turbo t/a's that have been converted to 400/455's & they kept the original WS springs & teh car sat about the same as with the 301t.  while the 301 engine is lighter than a traditional pontiac v8, once you factor in the weight of the turbo parts its not that much of a difference... especially if you use an alum intake on the 400.  if the stock springs sit at a decent height, i would swap the motor & see how the car sits, you might like it. 

** however, personally i would NOT swap the motor, the 301t can easily be made to run as fast or faster than a stock to mild built 400, & the car stays original ** ;)

Here's a link with production numbers. Not by color though. Still interesting.

Close as you'll get also...GM/Pontiac didn't keep records of specific options/color combos aside from SE cars. Any numbers you get would be merely a guess

If you go to your Profile...then Account Settings...hover over Modify Profile for a drop-down menu that includes Look and Layout...you will see a box you may check or uncheck for "Show most recent posts at the top".
Changing this back and forth gave me the backwards effect you describe.....I'd say the issue is in this setting for you.
Hope this helps.

I don't always time to reply when I scan over things on break at work but I try to reply/post when time allows.

All of the topics I've looked at are in normal order (original post at top with consecutive replies following below).....including this one.

Suspension / Front & Rear Spring advice
« Last post by Izard on April 22, 2018, 11:48:50 AM »
1981 Trans Am restoration. Got the car for almost free so decided to restore. The car was a 301 cid turbo but going back with 400 cid A/C equipped, which weighs more than the original engine. I'm not interested in lowering any, I just want a good, solid looking and handling street stance. What are your recommendations on rear leaf and front coil setup? Thanks......
