Another vote for Pfadt!

The main reason for me recommending Pfadt is not solely because they are our supplier for the highest quality Vette and Camaro parts on the market, or the fact that their service and knowledge are second to none. It's because I have used Pfadt Racing parts on my 04 Z06 long before I even started selling and installing them and the quality and handling characteristics are absolutely amazing. The parts (and my driving of course lol) insured me several wins in various classes both on The Nurburgring in Germany, as well as several other tracks in Europe. To be able to easily set the car up for different tracks is a huge benefit!

Scroll forward to my daily driver, a 2010 Camaro SS with just springs and sways (for now) and the car is as compliant on the street, as it is nimble and well balanced on the track. A perfect medium for an all-round car that see's everything from the road-course, to the 1/4 mile, to 7600 miles of daily driving miles in just 2 months.

You can't go wrong with Pfadt parts in my opinion, whether it's a full blown race car or a daliy driver.

I have the Pedders extreme street package and I couldn't be happier with the results. Mike Haddad of Haddad Motorsports in Los Angeles did the install and setup and did a fantastic job. The sponginess of the suspension is gone in every way; acceleration, cornering and ride. The car feels crisp, precise and handling is very predictable and solid. You especially notice it when on rough or uneven surfaces; the car tracks beautifully without any drama. Ride isn't harsh either. Well worth the upgrade.

I highly recommend the Pedders setup and if you're in L.A. go to Haddad's... he'll do it and set it up right.

If you don't mind, could you elaborate on what your issues are and what the $200 upgrade is?

I spoke with Pfadt and placed a sway order yesterday...I had a FRC c5 for a while...so I'm very familiar with how good of a product they make.

I have a comment...Forgeline 'protecting' offsets is flat out idiotic. I wouldn't buy something without knowing the specs. I've bought custom wheels for too many cars to chance someone behind a desk that I don't know. Sorry.

Cameron, first of all this is not an attack of your post, rather it is an attempt to understand what point you are trying to make and how it relates to the thread. I think a lot of folks have done the community a good service of offering up their opinions and the reasons they made their decision to go with either Pfadt or Pedders and even Aaron (Pfadt) and Mike (dms Pedders) have made their case in a very professional manner.

You didn't quote a particular post in the thread and is written as though it may be directed at one. Again, not attacking you but just trying to understand the point you're making.

Thanks in advance...

Hi evolution auto,

Would you please give us a call directly to discuss your issues with your Pfadt products? What are the problems? What products are you referring to? This is the first we are hearing of any problems. In the past, if a customer has ever had a noise issue or anything like that, we send out new mounts for free because we improved the design. Please let us know, we are here to help. The phone number is in my signature. Thanks!

Forgeline may not publish the offsets but they do come written on the box that they ship in.

Pedders and I agree with Doc. If you live in SoCal, go to Haddad Motorsports for service. The Pedders Camaro Xa Track Extreme was the best choice for me and the ride is kickass.

I'm VERY happy with all the Pfadt stuff I've used on my projects. Their spherical bushings on my '68 C6 susp Camaro are killer and their CS is top notch.

Oh, BTW.. I saw the photos from the shoot we did on your Camaro.. let me just tell you they are stunning..

Can't wait to run them in the magazine.
