I don't think the strut will function correctly since the grand prix is heavier in front than the Trans Am is.

SOURCE: Can you swap the supercharger of 1997 pontiac grandprix gtp to1997 pontiac grandprix gt

Well yes and no, anything is possible with enough work and or money. You can install it on another vehicle but without proper tuning you will do damage to the engine ... that being said there are several ways to sort this out. Custom tuning and bigger injectors and a fuel controller with a boost sensor input would be good or if you can swap wiring and computers that would work as well but is a bit of an undertaking. And really it comes down to how much boost you plan on running if the supercharger has the stock pulley you might be able to just get away with a tune hope that helps .... ps apex fuel controllers are pretty cheap and fairly easy to install. Pss. Some will tell you to do a boost referenced fuel pressure regulator and bump fuel pressure up to compensate... In my experience I have found this approach doesn't work well at all and is pretty unreliable

I have a 1996 pontiac trans am with a ls-1 and im


In 1996 the Trans Am came with an LT1 unless an LS1 was swapped in. Timing is not adjustable in either engine though. Why do you feel you need to adjust the timing?

Need a diagram bad....!!!


The front suspension is a combination strut and spring design. The control arms (11) pivot from the crossmember (12). On base models conventional rubber bushings are used for the lower control arm pivots. On up-level suspensions the front bushing is replaced by a cross axis bearing.

FRONT SHOCKS


There are three bolts under the hood, then two bolts at the bottom of the strut assembly holding it to the steering knuckle. You may have another bolt holding the brake hose to the strut.

After the strut assembly is out, you MUST use a spring compressor to hold the springs before removing the top bearing nut. DON'T try this without one, you can be seriously injured!

How to change hood struts 1989 Pontiac Trans Am?


you first have to take off the hood (2 bolts on each side where the hood meets the hinge) then take off the hood hinges (3 or 4 bolts on each side on top of fender) and after all that your hood hinges should be off. on each end there will be a metal retainer that holds the strut on the hinge, carefully pry these off with a screwdriver and install new struts, bolt the hinges back on and finally the hood

(have a friend help you lift the hood off)
