Pfadt spings installed!

Got my Pfadt lowering springs thanks to Chase @ Apex Motorsports. Did a self-install yesterday and was pretty easy. Any body can do it as long as you have a T50 torx wrench .....had to run into work to pick one up

Now the car handles like how it should.....feels like as if it were on rails and I don't know if its me or not, but I think it has a better ride quality than the stock suspension.....no bounce or pounding at all!!! I'd recomend these to anybody looking a good set of lowering springs....Pfadt nailed it on this one!!

NOW.....for the next mod......22's! Just waiting for the Forgestar F14's to come out in 22's...hopefully by December!

Before and after pics...

Well my wife had eibach springs on her Z24 and that rode horrible, so they were out of the picture.....and just reading all the positive comments on this site and talking to PQ and Nine Ball I decided to go with these. No regrets!

Wish I could do this, but my driveway, which is gravel, and rutted some wont allow me to lower it any. My Mustang isnt lowered but it scrubs every time...

I had the front and rear done this morning. I used the Performance Street specs that Pfadt recomends.

I appreciate it, mine should be installed either late this week or early next. How are you liking this mod? From everyone I have talked with they say that this is one of the best mods they have done

Did you do the end links as well and sways? Any problem with cutting the bump stops? Looks awesome! I am about 98% this is the way Im going to go.

Unfortunately I didn't change out the sways yet but I do plan on doing it. The bump stops are pretty easy to cut, I just used a serrated knife and it worked fine.

Trust me you will love it! Car hugs the road now, I'm sure it will handle even better with the sway bars installed.

I have the Pfadt drop springs, sway bars, and end links. Love it. As you said, much better cornering!

Your car looks great with the new stance. When I look at a Camaro with stock springs, they just look too high.

Be aware that getting 22" wheels will definitely make your ride a bit rougher. I put 22" wheels on my car and I love the look, but you will feel more bumps.
