Guys unfortunately Pfadt has been dealing with some backorders on their POPULAR ZL Spec sways... They are on top of everything, but end of the day they want to bring you a quality product, not a pieced together bar that just looks shiny.

I understand as we always get the new Pfadt goodies or other vendor goodies and can't wait to test them all out. We'll be putting their drag spec ZL bar on the shop car soon enough too.

has nothing to do with an expansion and releasing headers and focusing on ats and and and?

interested in the delays for camaro products when new vette needs r and d and they start to make products for that.

Guys we are working hard to complete all of the zl spec components for you! A lot of work goes into making these bars from raw stock, and they are finally nearing completion. We will keep you updated.

Also, while our ATS and Camaro/Corvette power products are generating a ton of excitement for us, those components are built by an entirely different team in our shop. Currently, our suspension team is working overtime to keep up with the increased demand we've seen this summer. I guess people everywhere are starting to catch on to our suspension systems for the Camaro (which has been the case for the Corvette for some time), and I've been taking on average 5-10 calls per day more for our zl spec parts since mid May.

Matt...you can always sell me the current drag spec rear bar you have on the shop car for the older style control arms if you stick with the ZL spec.

Just a shame really- ordered back in June fully expecting to have my parts as neither Pfadt (directly) nor Apex showed any warning that the items were back ordered. Here we are we are with Camaro5fest next week and I thought I'd have the parts on my car, pumped to put it on the course and really drive it and now I can't. Gone ahead and cancelled reservations as this was the primary intent of my wife and I making the trip. I'll be happy whenever they finally do show up on my doorstep, but this has been a disappointing transaction to say the least.

Talked to Rob again today- looks like the ZL stage 2 kits shoul be back in stock and ready to start shipping Wed&Thurs of next week. End is in sight! Now if they could just expedite shipping so I could have that Friday...wishful thinking? 2nd day air.

We also have a large number of ZL-Spec sways on order and this honestly isn't the norm for Pfadt. There is light at the end of the tunnel and you'll be stoked when you get them!

Kind regards,

I'm trolling big time on this thread, but uh... do we (as in Apex) have an "after" shot to post?

I'll believe in seeing the light when I finally see a tracking number. Until then, will just continue to use the rest of the parts as paper weights.

Man this is really disappointing i finally have some money to spend on suspension and i read all this. I can understand to a point but no matter how small a company they've got to be ready for the huge demand im seriously second guessing if i should order anything now. :(

Order it and wait as long as you don't need it right away. These parts do rock just a pain to get right now.

Another "piece" of the puzzle arrives today. no one told me (no call, email) probably because Apex closed the order back in June, but UPS MyChoice alerted me of a shipment coming to my address... my estimation is the suspension upgrade pack (endlinks & lower control arms). Still awaiting the elusive sway bars hopefully everything is lined up to ship out this week.

I got my FE4 upgrade kit for my 10 and it took about a month, the ZL bars still waiting, ordered at same time as FE4 kit. Yesterday I ordered trailing arms and drop springs, all Pfadt and from Apex, drop springs said was on slight delay, trailing arms shipped... Better late than never, can't wait
