Smile *Replacing Fuel Pump*

Replacing my fuel pump tonight once my mechanic/bother-in-law drops it off. Does anyone have experience with dropping the tank and replacing the whole assembly? I'm figuring its not that bad but is there anything big I need to watch out for? Any tips or hints to make the job easier? I registered a long time ago but Never really been on the site, so I'm pretty new here. Also, I'm not made of money, so is there a cheaper way to lower your car without buying all new springs? If you have any ideas let me know! Thanks

I replaced the fuel pump on my 98gt when I had it and the only thing that gave me trouble was the fuel line connections but once I got the special tools to take them apart it was not too bad.

Be sure to get a fill neck gasket or else everytime you fill up your tank you'll spill gas everywhere

If you want to lower it..I didn't want to buy springs either so I just removed my old ones went aroun a coil and a half and cut it with a cutting tool.. it lowered it about an inch an a half pretty decent for pretty much no money..just got to be careful to cut all sides exact so it doesn't lean to one side
