Question about 1993 GMC Safari
Unfortunately not. I have had some people install a aftermarket high pressure pump inline that has worked however i do not recommend this.
The job is actually not to back, remove most of the gas from the tank, remove the straps ( might need to replace them) and remove the tank partially to expose the fuel line connections. Remove the fuel lines and power connector then remove the tank. Remove the locking ring on top the tank, remove the pump and fuel level sender. Install new pump and re install.

You can change without pulling tank if your willing to cut a 6 inch x 6 inch inspection cover directly over hatch for tank. i made a new cover a little larger than hole i cut.cant see it under carpet.very helpfull if you have to service again. and you will eventually if you keep your van for any length of time.

Many of the Pontiacs of that era up to even present models had an access panel in the trunk that you could access through the back seat pass through.
Its been a while since I seen the inside of a Firebird, but in thinking about it the back seat pass through may not be present on the Firebird, but it may be worth the time to lift up the carpeting in the trunk area and see if there is an access panel to the fuel pump.

NO dont drop tank, you will be sorry, take bed off, only like 6 or 8 bolts, and you will have more room to work, and its a pain in the *** to undo the lines and drop the tank, you cant get in there to do it, but just basic tools nothing special, be sure and try not to make any sparks while takein off that ring to get the pump out, and put an ac delco pump on there

2003 Grand Am GT,You have to drop the fuel tank,remove heat shield,remove all lines,electrical plug ins,then you are ready to do straps,be sure to go get extra nut and bolts for straps (2) of them had to cut off old ones,once straps are off depending on how much gas is in the tank used jack to lower tank,fuel pump was a twist off with locking mechanisms on top of tank,used a rubber malet and screw driver to loosen,pull out after diconnecting plug ins etc,replace blue plug in for harness to fit new pump,was recommended since it could corrode,lifted tank back up connected wires,lines etc,put key in on position 3-4 times for pump to pump,car started 1st time,my first fuel pump took my son and I 2 1/2 hours,new pump $250.00 wire harness $15.00 and two new nuts and bolts $3.25

if your talking about the lock ring on the tank there is a special tool but a brass chisel and hammer can be used to turn the ring until its loose enough to unscrew by hand. if this is about removing the pump from the bottom of the tank then there is a special tool for that also but it can be removed by hand you just have to twist it counter-clockwise. and it will be not be easy to turn but i have done it just have a rubber glove on to pad your hand or its going to hurt.
