Well - in Post 6 I didn't really suggest where I've seen those before, but those were one of the things I looked at first, lol
Great. Hopefully all questions should now be answered. If not, they just need to ask

thanks again

I decided to wait for the permanent fix. Machined piece looks a lot nicer than my butchered steel bar. I can be very difficult and picky at times.

Now the million dollar question... Centri or PD? Still weighing in pros/cons. Plus, wife wants to go on another extended trip next year. I actually considered shipping car to CA to drive across country. But I told her I'd do that after I put the FI in... Sad thing, my wife has immediate family in Valdosta GA and couldn't swing the timing.

FI vs Vacation

Back on topic, the new front clamp mechanism matches the back and completes the SwaybarB package. Good swaybar solution especially at that package price point.

The purpose of the spacers is to give the clearance so not cutting or grinding has to be done to the brackets. We really want it to be seamless. Adding the spacers, will make it so.

Thanks

Yes, if you send an email to Jacie she will send you a set straight away.

Start at 15 front and rear. Drive the car a day or two. Drop them down to 3 and drive it a day or two. Raise them to 27 front and rear. Drive the car a day or two. Now you have a good feel for the range of the adjustment and can set your car to exactly where you like it.

Thank you for choosing Pedders for you Camaro. We appreciate your trust and thank you for your business. Welcome to the Pedders Nation!!!

Chatted with Jordan this week. A great guy. I send him all the latest technical support items for the 2 sets he is doing.

Thanks for your support!

The term community fits here! When I heard Jordan was going to do 2 Camaro bars, and knowing him, it was important to me to make sure he got the latest and greatest data. So ultimately, this will give the 2 forum members the best job that can be done!

The true circle of committment and community!

Thanks again for believing in Pedders and welcom to our Pedders Nation!

way to stay involved mike..its nice feeling that you put yourself out there on a daily basis and come up with answers we have ,not to mention manuals emailed to us and the shops...no calling and leaving messages, waiting for a return call..great support...not saying that others don,t do the same.. just saying that happily impressed with support...means alot to people who spend good money...ex-look at how savini handled pq---..never should of taken this long to try and resolve...i know savini is trying to make right , but image is badly tarnished...i have read where pedders has had some issues as with other competetiors, its just the nature of the beast..but pedders has had great communication with there customers and worked diligently and quickly to resolve these problems...great job guys..btw recd bushings today mike....:thum bsup:
