We're a few months away from getting Stacey's Tahoe... She's already approved the Pedders mods once we get it. Do you carry both 4wd and 2wd stuff?
and don't forget headers! the ones i got for my truck are great & surprisingly cheap. they work on all the GMT800s i don't have to remind you what a difference they make

Radius rod bushing's installed. for such a simple mod... it really does provide a ton of feed back to the wheel...

Very cool mod.

Pedders HD Radius Rod Inserts

Yeah they kinda are... I was surprised at how much more "lively" the steering wheels was...

Inputs are much more crisp. Feedback to the wheel is better. And, when the steering wheel comes back to center, it feels like there is almost a detent when the car is going straight... Not an actual detent but you can feel the steering wheels kinda come to rest more positively at dead center...

It's kinda hard to describe...

I kinda over looked them amidst all the other more "sexy" components I installed almost a year ago... But that was a mistake.. Again, this is a suspension novice talking so take it FWIW... These inserts seem to bring the feel of all the other suspension components straight to the wheel... It's pretty cool...

Neat!!

And the Suspension Novice part is what makes your thoughts all the more valuable to me!

I think that's a good explanation. They also eliminate any delay when turning the wheel. It's snappier, instant response.

Don't they make a full replacement bushing too? I might do those next, since the insert did such a good job. Pete? I know you're hiding in here somewhere!
