tpower,

You said "Pfadt alignment specs" .... I must not have read all of my directions. Or more than likely, like a typical man, didnt read the directions at all. Could someone tell me the alignment specs.

PFADT doesn't mess around. They bring the RUCKUS to Camaros and Corvettes!! Great group of people as well. I'm fortunate to live in the same town as Aaron Pfadt and get to chat with Him in person from time to time at different events. Great Guy!!

I'm debating on doing the work myself. I'm just concerned about the whole timing the bushings thing. I looked at the threads on here about it and seems easy, but just dont want to screw anything up haha...Cant wait to feel the difference though

Great looking car Tpower! A good alignment can really make or break a vehicle, go out and enjoy the car before the snow starts to fly!

The installation isn't too bad; you'll need a spring compressor and some metric wrenches but not bad. In regards to "Timing" the bushings I suggest putting it on the ground once complete and put 10-15 miles on it and you're done.... The weight of the car will make the adjustments. I've never had an issue.

Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions! We've set a few of these up and have parts as well!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley
