I have the same problem in my subdivision. Check out Bridjit Curb Ramps. And thanks for your order!

BalogUK 06-12-2013 05:42 PM

Exactly my plan, Chase been stalking Amazon all week as they cycle the price up and down. Gives me time to order them as I just got the email from Victoria that the kits are out of stock!

BalogUK 06-14-2013 08:39 AM

Chase/Paul, does Pfadt drop-ship direct to me, or will they ship components to you and then you subsequently ship the full kit to me?

According to Pfadt, the outstanding items are the endlinks

BalogUK 07-03-2013 07:45 PM

Still waiting for Pfadt to get all the components ready....3weeks and counting. Anyone else waiting for ZL stage 2 kit?

Happy 4th everyone!

Fast6.3 07-04-2013 10:54 AM

Im waiting on endlinks

HaulnSS 07-04-2013 10:58 AM

Still waiting on mine. Been a few weeks.

Rjgreen2 07-05-2013 07:07 AM

I got the Stage 3, everything is on its way except the endlinks and sway bar, its getting powder coated.

Same as I've been told... But it should be done by now. Endlinks were drop forged a couple weeks ago and bars should've been back from the coater by now.... :frusty:

Update:

So much for anything being on its way... Pfadt says middle of July at least before package will be ready to ship. Still can't get a clear answer as to what the "latest" parts delay is. But is what it is. No speeding it up.
I truly appreciate that everything's made in-house-- that's how you ensure top quality-- but come on, if you know stock is low, move forward with production. Do you wait till you're on the side of the road, out of gas before deciding to get more, no! So WTF Pfadt?! Way to make my first experience with your company pretty damn &!>+y.
Total downer for the summer.

I feel your pain man. I ordered coil overs and camber plates at the end of May. Got the coilovers the next week but not the camber plates. I was told six weeks.....well here it is six weeks later and nada. Just asked for a refund since Pfadt told me they have no idea when they will be making them......now that is a WTF?

Ordered my ZL spec sways a few weeks ago and still don't have those. I was told this week they don't even have the bar stock to make the until next week. So I am hoping in a few weeks I will have them. NOT VERY IMPRESSED WITH PFADT RIGHT NOW!!

SPCBA 07-06-2013 05:18 PM

they are busy building headers apparently

alaskacamaro 07-07-2013 12:30 PM

Had PFADT ZL stage three package installed a few weeks ago. Without a doubt the most impressive modd I did to the car. Hard to put into words how much differently the car handles...

Hmm no bar stock...well that's troubling. I guess it's all been lies about the bars being at the powder coater for the past two weeks. They need to get their story straight with a number of orders outstanding.... :paddle:

Jim Burke 07-08-2013 02:17 PM

Yea I've been waiting about the same amount of time.

Kinda frustrating, especially because I was told they were supposed to be ready to ship last week. Now no one seems to know when they will ship

PfadtRacing 07-08-2013 02:35 PM

PM me the details on your orders and I will keep you guys completely in the loop. I know the guys in the back are working overtime to build and test everything and have it sent out as fast as possible. When you build 100% here in the states it gets harder to keep large inventory, but our stuff is top notch and well worth the wait!

CHMSC 07-09-2013 02:03 AM

Finished up putting on my pfadt coil overs tonight. These things rock!! Can't wait to hit the track! I guess the wait for these parts is worth it but it would be nice to get a straight story from the get go.

Very happy with the coilovers and will report back when I have adjusted them and have them dialed in.

Nice! :biggrin: Can't wait to get the rest of the package and install- hopefully Pfadt gets done sooner rather than later on the remaining parts-

BalogUK 07-10-2013 04:15 PM

Any updates Eric?
Today is 4 weeks. No ETA, no explanation from Pfadt.

BalogUK 07-15-2013 07:34 PM

Pfadt fails to perform
 
Tomorrow is 5 weeks without an ETA on when Pfadt will ship the parts they've accepted money for. Apex how is this good business practice?? How do you guys support this level of care and knowingly keep their products for sale knowing damn-well that it may be MONTHS before the customer may receive their orders?

I would say don't blame Apex. They are just the vendor. This is all on Pfadt. I am 3 1/2 to 4 weeks for just sways. Don't even get me started about the camber plates.

Just glad I have my coilovers installed. They shipped right away and were on my door step in less than five days.

VR Baron 07-15-2013 09:40 PM

Bars powd coated? Mine were just painted it appeared, scratched easily

I certainly don't blame Apex for this. What I am upset with is that they've closed out the order as if there's no issue, and further that they don't post that the items are back ordered or are long-lead. If I would have known it was going to take 5+ weeks I think I would have chosen an alternate product-- before my card is charged any money taken.

At this point I don't even talk to Apex any more because they have even less info than I do. I call and email Eric, Aaron and Robbin over at Pfadt and no one has a clue. They keep saying its a small shop but yet they can't figure out where the parts are in their assembly status. Inexcusable.
