Gotta give credit where it's due. Some of the best money I ever spent. Install was simple other than dealing with one factory bushing removal on lower knuckle. Results fantastic with virtually no effect to ride quality. Have yet to launch it hard, but have pushed the twisties a bit. Bites in and feels much better as long as I don't overrun traction conditions. Still running stock shoes. Definitely made it more fun to drive. I will admit its not all I have done. I do believe it was a very significant set of components in my attempt to create my ideal/affordable drivers car. Goal is great handling to take on any track desire I may have, with a respectable showing and yet daily drive if I wish. Keep it fun I say. I strive to maintain decent cabin comfort and noise levels, all my mods comply with no issues. Thanks again to Pfadt, Chase, and Apex for such wonderful offerings and service.

PFADT Toe Rods: $210 SHIPPED

The Pfadt 2010 Camaro Rear Tie Rods were developed using the latest analysis software which enabled them to increase strength 136% while simultaneously keeping mass at a drastic minimum (lighter than OEM w/ bushings). Keeping the mass low allows the suspension to react more quickly to the changing road surface keeping the tire in contact with the road to increase traction. Through further analysis and testing we were able to achieve a 99.8% reduction deflection which helps decrease wheel hop and increase traction even further.

Included with this kit is their leading edge Rear Tie Rod Bushing Kit. Utilizing lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum sleeves that are hard anodized to create incredible surface hardness and microscopic pores to hold their special grease. These sleeves are then Teflon coated to further reduce friction. This is then coupled with our graphite impregnated polyurethane bushing which uses deep grease grooves to hold and continuously re-lubricate the surfaces for long and quiet operation. The result is an ultra lightweight, ultra-low friction joint that is 42% lighter than the OE bushing and more durable then ever before. This kit includes the bushings for both the inner and outer suspension points.
The final arm is the result of four stages of precision manufacturing; CNC machining of the bushing housing, Laser cutting of the intricate panels, CNC bending and TIG welding to finish the assembly. All of this is accomplished right here in the USA.

PFADT Rear ARM Package: $395 SHIPPED

This package includes both the Rear Trailing Arm and the Rear Tie Rod, plus ALL bushings.

The Pfadt 2010 Camaro Rear Trailing Arms were developed using the latest analysis software which enabled them to increase strength by 106% while simultaneously reducing mass by 17%. The decrease in trailing arm mass allows the suspension to react more quickly to the changing road surface keeping the tire in contact with the road to increase traction. Through further analysis and testing Pfadt was able to achieve a 32% reduction deflection which helps decrease wheel hop and increase traction.
Using the same tools and procedures for the Pfadt 2010 Camaro Rear Tie Rods they were able to increase strength 136% while simultaneously keeping mass at a drastic minimum (lighter than OEM w/ bushings). Same principles apply to the Tie Rod as the Trailing Arm: Keeping the mass low to allow the suspension to react more quickly to the changing road surface keeping the tire in contact with the road to increase traction. Through further analysis and testing they were able to achieve a 99.8% reduction deflection which helps decrease wheel hop and increase traction even further.

Included with this kit is their leading edge Trailing Arm Bushing Kit and Rear Tie Rod Bushing Kit. Utilizing lightweight 6061-T6 aluminum sleeves that are hard anodized to create incredible surface hardness and microscopic pores to hold their special grease. These sleeves are then Teflon coated to further reduce friction. This is then coupled with graphite impregnated polyurethane bushing which uses deep grease grooves to hold and continuously re-lubricate the surfaces for long and quiet operation. The result is an ultra lightweight, ultra-low friction joint that is 42% lighter than the OE bushing and more durable then ever before. This kit includes the bushing for both the trailing arm and also the upright for a complete performance trailing arm upgrade.

The final arms are the result of four stages of precision manufacturing; CNC machining of the bushing housing, Laser cutting of the intricate panels, CNC bending and TIG welding to finish the assembly. All of this is accomplished right here in the USA.

Chase - is this an alternative to the Control Arm Stiffener or two different things? I had the Control Arm Stiffener done a while back.

Yes, you are covered if you already have the stiffeners.

I placed a order with you for the Trailing Arms and Toe Rods earlier today, after installation will I need a alignment?

-Edit

Thank you for your feed back and your business. We sincerely appreciate both.

Chase - how do these help with the overall ride quality on the street? I don't do AutoX nor do I take the car down the strip. I've already got the springs and sways, and I'm looking to suspension upgrades next.

You will not notice much change in the ride. The trailing arms and tie rods work to decrease wheel hop and increase traction. They are both lighter and much stronger than the stock parts they replace, allowing them to resist deflection and respond more quickly which maintains you tires contact patch on the road surface.

Anytime you replace something that effects toe you will want to get your alignment checked. Rear toe is set via the rear tie rods so this definitely applies. Toe out of spec can eat up tires quickly and cause some really wonky handling characteristics.

If reducing wheel hop and improving traction are your goal I would look at addressing the rear cradle (also called sub frame) and differential bushings.

Chase, do you have the trailing arm bushing kits? I couldn't find them in the website.
