I started to notice it on my 99 a couple of years ago. I ended up finding out there was a service bulletin issued back around 2000 or so. Apparently from around 1999 I believe to 2002 they used an improper adhesive on the sail panel that gases off and reacts with the fiberglass panel causing the bubbling. The only cure for it is to remove and replace. If there any repair attempts made and then repainted the adhesive will gas off and cause the same problem again.

Any 98-02 owners that have had to have their sail panel replaced due to the bubbling paint issue? Was curious how much I should expect to pay for the body work and paint. I did pick up a new panel, but figured will wait to take it in.

General Discussion / Re: 99 Firehawk original ride height?
« Last post by firebirdclub on November 18, 2018, 12:42:13 PM »
Check out UM I Performance. I've purchased their products since they hit the market. They have a great product line and the quality is outstanding. I just ordered new bump stops, 3 point sub-frame connectors and the Koni shocks/struts package from them for my 94 25th Anniversary Trans Am GT. I also have upgraded my 99 T/A's suspension with their product line and couldn't be happier. I used the KYB AGX adjustable shocks for the '99.

General Discussion / 99 Firehawk original ride height?
« Last post by bigblueearth on November 16, 2018, 12:11:58 PM »
I am replacing shocks/struts and am trying to figure out the original ride height. I have ordered the "optional" level II replacement springs from SLP. They were not much help on what "optional" meant but those were the only ones they had. No info either on how those springs affect the ride height compared to factory non SLP firebirds. Any help is greatly appreciated as I am wanting to take a little trip on Thanksgiving with the Bird and would like to get all this taken care of. I am currently banging some worn out bump stops and it is super annoying.

Also; loaded question, Is there any even partial agreement on a good choice of brand for the shocks/struts. I am mostly just a pleasure cruiser so don't need anything radical.

Thanks in advance
