Like I said I have pretty much the same set up, but there end link failed on mine, might have be an isolated case but put a bad taste after that... took forever to get the refund and never heard back from them and they did not care about any of the other damage it did and almost took out my ABS line.. have not had any issues with my hotkhis ones

But Pfadt is soooooo worth it. The only part that wasn't Pfadt is what broke on my car @ Super Chevy.

Pfadt may be expensive, but in this case, you definitely get what you pay for. When I decide to do bushings, rear trailing arms, etc., I'll go Pfadt without a doubt.

The rear cradle is a MUST. Then Diff and upper control arm, then the front Radius arm.

No problems, car was at Haddads getting some adjustments to the coil overs. Then he puts it back on his alignment rack to make sure it's all in spec.
