Default Rear Shocks - Trunk sits too low

My trunk in my 97 grand prix gtp sangs way too low.

I'm wondering if someone could recommend some new shocks/air bags/ whatever you suggest to help fix this problem.

Here is some pictures of my current ones.

Also I would have to replace/fix this situation without getting into my trunk. Because my box will not come out of my trunk. I built it inside my trunk and it takes up 97% of it...

oh btw, if someone knows how to replace a stud for my lug, i'd appreciate the help(last picture)

couple ways, bags that are filled with air rest underneath there and they inflate to whatever, or coilovers which fit over there and you can adjust them for proper weight, or just get better springs.

On the wheel stud, since yours is all the way out. you should be able to go the parts store and get a new one. You will have to beat it in from the back.

Which would be the best way? I was under the impression of a whole new suspension system for the back?

I assumed it would be something simple like that, but wasn't quite sure

You gotta pull the caliper off and the rotor and remove the hub and get a stud and have it pressed in or smang it in with a hammer.

Either going to need stiffer springs or airbags prolly for the weight issue.

These guys can custom make you Coil Springs for instances such as this...Where you a have a lot of extra weight in the trunk...

Let them know what your set up is...What you want...They can help you out..

They know what your current Spring Rate is..Just by the Make & Model of your car..

Just let them know about how much extra weight you have in your trunk..

If you don't know how much extra weight you have in your trunk??..

You could just have them make you Coil Spings with double your current Spring Rate..


Check them out...Whatever your needs are they can hook you up!


Their Custom Coil Springs are not really expensive either..
