Angry Sway bars, trailing arms, and rear tie rods is there anything equal to Pfadt

since I will not be getting the PFADT ZL1 sway bars, trailing arms and rear tie rods I ordered is there anything equal to their quality and performance. I dont want to hear I have these and like them. I want to hear from people who know. no offence but im pissed and on forums you get a lot of people who dont know because the only know what they got and if something is better they dont know. My car will only have the best parts. I dont care about the money.

Good question! No Pedders either! I have BMR trailing arms and GM ZL1 toe links on my '10. I would say BMR or Whiteline at this point. Contact Tyler at JDP, he can help guide you to solid products!

Check out Whiteline Suspension. They were the manufacturer of many of the Pedders products.

I checked out Spohn their sways are for FE3 suspension. Like the Chrome Molly. I sent them a email about it. If they dont have FE4 sways ill probably go with BMR. I want Made in USA and i want to find a company that makes everything. are BMR soft steel for the trailing arms and toe rods? Im not going to be racing but I do want the best performance with out any noise.

The JDP guys highly recommend the Spohn trailing arms and toe rods. No idea on the sways as I was fortunate enough to get the Pfadt sport sways from someone on the classified boards.

Why?

The company that makes the best sway bars most likely isn't the same as the one that makes the best bushings...

For bushings, I would go with Whiteline or Prothane. My top sways were Pedders and Pfadt, but not sure who is best there now.

J,

Give DSE a call for the trailing arms and toe rods and solid bushings. They have them adjustable, I saw them at PRI, and they look very well made. also USA built.

they don't have FE4 sways yet, but I am sure they will soon.

BMR is able to offer parts to the performance aftermarket community at a lower cost because we are a full manufacturing facility. We manufacture right here in-house at our facility in Seffner, FL. Unless it is a specialty product that requires special processes, everything is done right here. That saves us money, which in turns saves you money! You would be surprised to find out how many products from other companies are outsourced (even overseas). Additionally, we are not out to price-gouge our customers. We are ALL car guys ourselves, and we understand that the best possible quality at the best possible price is what people want....and we deliver on that!

well i bought everything from BMR
front rear sways
toe rods
trailing arms w/ outer bushings
radius rod bushings
lower control arm bushings
steering rack bushings
derlin cradle bushings
full rear upper control bushing kit http://www.bmrsuspension.com/?page=p...productid=1171
some day ill do rear lower control arms and sway bar links. Dont think there is anything left to do. I dont want diff bushings as i dont want extra noise and read that there not really needed.
Just received the toe and trailing arms in black hammer tone. very impressed. very well built and finish is great. there light to. by looking at the picks you would think they weigh allot but no there very light.

BMR is what I shifted all my suspension needs too. I have PFADT trailing arms, toe rods, and diff bushings, but I am going to change them out for BMR. I have issues with mixing brands of parts, so Im redoing all of it. At this time I have BMR springs, sways, diff bushings, and end links waiting to go on. I ran BMR on on '98Z28 and loved them. With this car, I wanted the best, which PFADT was. Now Im sold on BMR.
