Suspension - Recommended Installers?
 
Hey all,
I'm looking for some advice on a good shop that can install my Pfadt Stage 3 ZL Spec Suspension Kit. (i.e. Sub-Frame bushings, Springs, Sways, trailing arms, alignment, etc...)

I am looking for someplace close to home (North Eastern PA or North Western NJ).

Does anybody have a good recommendation?

It's not rocket science with the parts you have, so any shop that you have nearby can do it unless you don't mind spending a weekend to save a few bucks, get dirty, and do it yourself. The only thing you can't do is the alignment. The only thing that might get you is the bushings, but if you follow the directions on the website, you can do it yourself.

If you don't want to do it, find a local mom and pop garage. You can probably negotiate a good price with them.

Pfadt is on the same level as Pedders suspension, and the last place I'd bring my car to for a high performance alignment is a mom and pop shop. The OP spent good money on a Pfadt system, so I'd sure as hell want someone familiar with high performance cars and alignments. There's a big difference between aligning your average car and a car outfitted with some of the best components. Do you want aggressive street set up, road course, 1/4 mile specific, there's a lot of questions you need to ask a potential shop. I can tell you 2 places in NJ that I'd trust, but I'm sure with some research you can find someone a little closer.

Thanks for the responses everyone.
John and Craig from Epic Tuning have done some great work for me before, I forgot they moved to a new location. I will be going over there to get the work done.

Will do Mike, I'm scheduled for the 26th because they are really busy. John had mentioned he just did your car recently. I also have an MGW short throw on order but it won't be here in time so I will probably end up doing that myself if they remain too busy for a quick appointment. I just put on my exhaust (Stainless Works Retro Chambered Cat Back) myself because I was just too damn anxious to wait until the 26th. I don't mind having them do even the things that I can do because they are great guys and deserve to have the work.
They did all the work on my EVO and it came out fantastic. That was one fast car but it was time to say goodbye after 90K miles and 6 years.
Hope you can make it down, I would love to see your car as well!

BTW, A buddy of mine with a '13 IOM SS and I are probably going to the Pypes Open House (Landsdale, PA) this Saturday. If you're not doing anything maybe you should swing by. All the info is on the Pypes website http://pypesexhaust.com/openhouse.html

Give us a call. We can get everything installed for you.

East Coast Supercharging (ECS) http://www.eastcoastsupercharging.com/ did my Pfadt coilovers, sport sway bars, endlinks, trailing arms, bushings; Hotchkis Strut Tower brace and my Cold Air Inductions CAI. Chris and Doug are the best in the business and Lead Tech Tommy is outstanding.

Highly recommend them.

I stopped in saw your car up on the lift ,your putting some bucks into that bad boy,looking good,really like to see her when there done.I was talking to John about the pfadt headers maybe next mod he said your where talking about them to,like there line ,herd good things from people I know who own vetts. Was thinking july 14th down at steel stacks pretty nice car show ,maybe we can hook up there,John usually stops by ,some really nice cars usually good turn out,let me know if you can make it ,really want to here the muffler system and the car should look great lowered .Hope to see you there ,have a good day!

Thanks. Yeah they did a great job, they always treat every car like its their own. The car drives so much better now. Heard you're getting the MGW installed. You're gonna love it. John was impressed with how it felt in my car. I have also heard some great things about Pfadt Tri-Y headers. I was happy to hear they are now available for our cars. I may have to hold off on the headers for just a bit since a tune will be needed. Once I go down that path, I'm probably going do a cam and clutch at the same time.
Next thing might be 3.73 or 3.91 gears but I'm probably ordering a front splitter before that. Still trying to figure out which one I want.
I'll see what's going for the 14th and let you know if I can make it. Cheers!

spacedriver 06-27-2013 10:02 PM

The tune ,that's whats holding me back,figure get some more miles on the car.I have ZL1 splitter on mine and just picked up ZL1 rockers,waiting on carben fiber spoiler . I know it's easier said then done ,but will have to hook up sooner or later,have a good nite.
