My guess is Pedders plates. Pete designed the camber plate with I believe Bruce Raymond. I'm wondering if Pete owns the rights to the design and manufacture, or if Pedders AU does since he was part of that business.

Apex has stated the Pfadt coil overs are not coming back, so I don't see them making only one piece of the puzzle.

It will be interesting to see. Worst case I sell my Pfadts and buy a set of Ridetech's.

Remember that Pfadt had plates for factory struts, that's what i'm referring to. I'm not sure if that will happen or not, as that's currently in the early stages of evaluation. I just happen to be "somewhat" involved in production of another piece that was discontinued, and is about to be back as long as nothing crazy happens. As an enthusiast, I'm trying to help bring as many pieces back as possible, whether I personally need them or not.

The only downside is that it currently fits only our coil overs. We designed the strut shaft a little differently than other manufactures which made it stronger, but more difficult to adapt a plate to.
Well you could borrow my car to make them fit other coil overs.
