My 1993 Trans Am leans about 3/4 of an inch lower on the passenger side
than the drivers side. I thought my springs were probably worn on that side,
and so I installed a full set of Eibach Pro Springs which lowered the car
all around, but didn't fix the leaning problem. I was wondering if there are
any types of coil spring spacers I could install and correct the problem.
Any suggestions would be great! Thanks for reading.
Can anybody tell me how to pull the codes from a 95 F-bird with a OBDI
This car was built in 10/94 as a 95 model.
GM used a 16 pin connector ( OBDII ) instead of the 12 pin.
I use an AutoXray OBD-II scanner with a GM-specific OBD-1 cable on my
91 Z-28. Had to buy a 50 dollar software upgrade plus the cable to
make it work.
The software allows me to scan all GM OBD-I vehicles. I have to input
the year model and the body platform, i.e. "91" and "F".
I'll bet using the OBD-II cable with the OBD-I software would do it.
Before I got the scanner, I used the "flashing dashboard light"
method. Is this feature not implemented on your car?

Don't you think you might want to take it in and find out how bad the
body is tweaked or what suspension component is toast before you fix
the symptom and not the problem?

Some are wise and some are otherwise
Well, the reason I changed the springs in the first place was because the
guy at our friendly local Pro Tech was installing the flowmaster, and I
asked him about the car leaning, he said "springs are the only thing it can
be". Obviously, he was mistaken. What type of place would you suggest taking
it to, an alignment shop perhaps? I have a friend who has a '96 T/A and his
leans to the passenger side as well, only not as severe as mine. Is there a
component on the suspension that is known to cause these types of problems?
FWIW my '95 Camaro Z28 (on stock springs) was always noticeably higher
on the driver's side (at least 3/4 inch). My 2000 Camaro sits a bit
higher overall so the effect is less obvious, but I think you will
find a lot of late model F-bodies that don't sit level for whatever
reason. Someone once told me the drivers' side was made to sit higher
deliberately, so that the car would be level when the driver is
sitting in it. I have no comment on the truthfulness of that
