Unless you truly understanding the legal issues Pete is facing, it's pre-mature to draw conclusions about what kind of communications he can or should have with his customers right now, even seemingly innocuous communications. This could be a situation in which he simply cannot communicate with his customers until the legal issue is resolved, regardless of how frustrating it is to Pete and his customers.

There is no excuse for not letting your valued customers know what's up and what's being done to resolve the issue(s).
Good point, but I guess you'll have to ask Pete yourself! That is if you can get ahold of him! LOL! I'm thinking that he may have been given notice not to communicate anything until the legal issues are resolved. We are doing nothing but speculating at this point!

The only thing I can speculate as to why someone would/could not communicate with the customers is if he's in jail or on the run. It has happened before to people. They just vanish.

If Pedders AU can say something about having a legal situation, then so can Pete. He doesn't have to disclose details, but he CAN state something to the fact that he's having some issues, hold one while we get things resolved, etc., etc.

But because he's incommunicado, my bet is he's not in a place that has internet readily available at the moment or he simply doesn't want to be found.

glad I found this I have been trying since Nov. 20, to get a response on how to send in Blown XA for rebuild. Like said no answer to emails or calls. no matter what is going on they should post something even if it said they currently were not operating. Now I have to figure out how to get my shock fixed? anyone know where I can get a seal kit and what weight the shock oil is?

Contact BC Racing and see if they have a rebuild kit for them. If not, they should be able to service them.

Thanks for the info, If I would have known I was not going to get support from Pedders I would have went with another vendor guess I got sucked in thought it was a good company with a good product. Less than impressed now. For post before I would send it in for replacement if I knew how to send it and that I would get something back. Car is not much good with only 3 shocks and can't mix with another companies. Pete's name is not even listed in the call directory now so not even sure if he even works there anymore. very frustrating if I knew in a month I could get it replaced I would wait not knowing causes stress

I made the decision back in 2009 to go with BMR rather then Pedder's because of the availability of there product. I have no regrets, US made to boot.

Are good products, top notch. Pete probably cant respond due to legal stuff. Sucks for all of us

Pedders stuff is excellent quality. They were my 1st choice when I tried to get everything upgraded this year. Unfortunately, when I was ready to order they were already tied up in this mess and wasn't able to fulfill the order.
