Pedders lowering springs special?

So, they don't advertise the spring rate or other info on them. They cost more. Do they know something the other drop spring vendors don't know?
Better match for the Camaro suspension components?

They are hot wound, good tolerances and a higher spring rate snd firmer from what I recall. Check out Pedders book on camaro thread. I prefered and had Hotchkis 1" springs

Why would anybody be looking to buy Pedders considering they appear to be out of business with no explanation from anyone?

At least confirm stock in hand of whichever vendor you go with. Pedders still has some parts out there through some of the Camaro5 vendors, but I wouldn't count on it.

I would highly advise against ordering directly from Pedders until you can get confirmation they are officially back in business.

^ And just hope you never have to warranty them I guess? There are other good options from companies that are still doing business and offering warranty coverage: Pfadt, Eibach, LG, Hotchkiss, etc.

Yeah, springs are a relatively safe purchase, but anything can break. Personally I'd go with one of the companies who's future isn't currently in question, just in case...
