OE Quiet Endlinks with Spherical Function

Spherical endlinks have been a staple on race cars for years. Spherical endlinks are not perfect. They are either noisy when you bolt them on or will become noisy after you use them. The range of motion can also cause issues with your setup.

Pedders new endlinks use a unique process. Unlike a traditional cast ball and stud, Pedders endlink ball joint starts life as a ball bearing. The stud is friction welded to the ball bearing. There are NO bolts. The housing is a precision casting with an extreme high temperature epoxy coating for a virtually perfect fit.

For OE, Xa coilovers and brand-x coilovers order CAMENDLINKKIT1

For Supercar coilovers order Camaro Endlink Kit Supercar





Camaro Rear



The function is far better than thje lame picture I have on my laptop. There are better pictures available in out catalog, but I'll get a better one up when I am back in the office.

This just in from PRI




GM and Pedders? No, Pedders does not make the GM Race Endlink. Pedders and GM do use the same ball joints. Two Great Great Companies Thinking the Same Way.

Those front endlink rods do not look any beefier than stock or is it just a bad pic?

Really bad picture. I am away from the office at West Coast Customs. When I get back in the office I'll post up more detailed pictures.

Installed the Pedders bars and these end links last weekend, huge improvement, and they are quiet as advertised. I did have issues with the lack of instructions included with the parts, and the incomplete ones on Pedder's website... One example is these end links don't require drilling the existing mounting holes on the car as described in the online instructions, didn't discover that until after drilling. Good product though.

it's a replacement link that will be stronger than the stock links area, but typically not going to something that you replace to make the car quieter if it's still stock suspension wise.
The available aftermarket parts have been known to make noise, this hasn't been the case with the Pedders links, these are just as quiet as stock, but are much stronger.

Give me a call at the warehouse (830.522.4757) and we'll arrange getting you new ball ends with larger studs.

Regards,
Dan

I would love to say yes and tell you to buy Pedders endlinks, but the answer is no. Your OE endlinks should be just as quiet as Pedders high efficiency endlinks. If they are not, they are covered under warranty.

Upgrading to Pedders high efficiency endlinks:

for stronger more durable ball joints.
to improves sway bar function.
for corner weighting adjustable length endlinks are essential.
are an excellent replacement for anyone tired of the noise from spherical endlinks.

Overall the Camaro is an exceptionally quiet car. Tell us about your noises.

End link question

Flyer,
The larger of the two studs goes to the sway bar and the smaller goes to the strut. I used an allen wrench to hold the stud from spinning. BIG difference over stock!!!

Hey Rob,
I'm pretty sure mine are the same size, I double check when I get home from work. I got XAs and sways at the same time. Do the XAs take a bigger stud?

they should be different, the ones posted are for the Supercar Coilovers, and are different from the Standard Xa coilovers. But i'm 99% sure they are still different sizes, though they are close in size so it's hard to tell.
