Crap. I missed this.

Now you see how easy it was for us that did the Pedders stuff. I had a problem with the rear alignment pins too. Had to put sockets under the front cradle mounts to lift the rear in a level manner.

Well done. Hope you enjoy it.

Those rear alignment pins can bind metal to metal. They fit inside the OE bush ferule and not directly into the bush material. That means you can lube it a little bit. A smear of Pedders molybdenum lube or just a squirt of WD-40 works wonders. Just a bit allows it to slip into place.

caverman,

It has been a few weeks since your install. Has your opinion or experience changed in any way?

Well, I got carried away and lubed the CRAP out of ALL of them. THEN found out I maybe shouldn't have.

Nope...opinion is still the same. They are working out great. Ride is nice and firm and I would definatley recommend Pedders over the other brand/style.

I still haven't had a chance to make it to the track and really put them to the true test. It's been extremely hot around hear lately. Last week I had to pick up my Yukon from the paint shop and in the driveway the temp guage was showing 108. Not sure if that was completley accurate but it sure has felt every bit that hot lately.

I use an air chisel with a rounded tip to vibrate off the lower sub-frame cover plates. Here is the short version.



The longer version is in the middle of this West Coast Customs video clip.

Yes sir I am asking if I can repost it under your user name. It is OK with you?

BTw, have you had a chance to autocross your Camaro since the install?

Sure...you can post it using my username.

Haven't had a chance to AutoX or Dragrace since adding them. The heat wave we've been having is keeping me from the track. 107 degrees in the shade today.

A month or so ago my dad and brother took our race car out to the drag strip and the track temp was reading right around 135 degrees. Just to hot for me right now.

Hopefully by the end of Sept or in Oct it will be cool enough to go out and report back.......which I will do once I've made it to the track.

I feel your pain with the heat. The other day it was only 99 and the local weather said we were in a cool wave

Take a look at this and let me know if anything should be changed. http://forums.peddersusa.com/showthr...=6833#post6833

135 degrees.

Damn. I'd tear my whole car up in that with my luck.
