    I'm having a real hard time adjusting the parking brake on my 1994 firebird formula with read discs. I have found a factory manual on how to adjust the parking brake and when I tried that it didn't work for me. Also I should note that my car has brand new factory replacement calipers, new pads...

    Hello Firebird Nation, I recently inherited a completely stock 1975 Firebird Formula 400 with 51,000 miles and would like to give it a little more spunk for the street on an efficient budget.

    My 14 year and I are restoring a 77' Firebird with a 350 (Not by me). It's his car to drive when he turns 16 so I'm pretty excited that's what he chose to drive and paid for half. However, being an excited 14 year old he ripped out the dash and wiring because several items wasn't working to...

  13. Fourth Generation Pontiac Firebird (1993 - 2002)
    So I've been car hunting and came across this abandoned bird at the end of last summer. It was in already good condition with some crazy black windows and lights covered with tape and black covers. But inside was equally as wierd with hidden pockets underseats and the mates. Plus lifting...

  15. Second Generation Pontiac Firebird (1970 - 1981)
    So I'm currently in the process of doing metal work on my 1978 Firebird Formula, getting ever closer to being ready for paint. My dad and I have decided we want to go with a nice silver, but aren't committed to a factory color. I'd like something fairly metallic with good contrast in the body...

    Hi everyone, quick question here. So a while back I installed a Borla Adjustable Cat-Back Exhaust (14555 specifically) with the largest restrictor plate.

  18. Fourth Generation Pontiac Firebird (1993 - 2002)
    Hey guys, so I'm not sure if this has been discussed/resolved before but I've got a slight annoyance with my 1997 Firebird Formula. It seems whenever I'm in 1st, 2nd, and sometimes 3rd gear but particularly low RPM (>1500), there's like this rattling/grinding noise as I accelerate even a little...
  19. Fourth Generation Pontiac Firebird (1993 - 2002)
    So here's the story: I get out of the gym, unlock my car as usual, go to sit in my car. As I begin to pullout of my parking space, I notice the dome lights are not going off. I thought it was strange so I opened and closed both my driver and passenger doors, which did the trick (dome lights went...
