I have not heard of any issues,

As for the weather, it will not be an issue.

I have 2 cars will complete Pedders kits on them, and i live in New England.
Both cars are driven in the snow, there have been zero problems with the weather.

From the "EP6579 Front Radius Rod HD Inserts" description on your website:

This solution is extremely firm and may lead to premature wear in the tie rod ends or the steering rack.

it's a precautionary statement, we have had no problems to date.
It's something that you should be aware of before purchasing, but the same can be said of any bush or insert that limits travel.

Are the HD (street Z kit) inserts GMPP approved too?

Yes, they are. Our radius bush inserts were the idea of a GM engineer working on the Grand Am prototype that now is built by Riley. The engineer asked for a urethane replacement for the OE rubber snubber in the radius bushes. We did a duplicate of the OE now called the EP6578. Being Pedders, we decided to take the idea a few steps further. The result is the EP6579. We made about twenty sets for GM to evealuate, but they were side tracked with a bad economy. After a bit I asked about the project status and was told to I could sell them as Pedders parts.

With what's been discussed, it looks like I will probably go with Pedders 27mm sways (front & rear) with the Street Z kit. I just need to wait for a couple of checks from the bank (recent refi) to come in before I can pull the trigger on this.

I will definitely post my review once I get everything installed!!

Thanks again for all the help & advice!!

Stupid F-ing bank screwed me out of some serious $. Looks like I will probably just be left going with the Street Z kit and have to wait until next spring for sways. Dammit.

Question for the Pedders guys out there: Why do all of the pictures of the 27mm Front & rear bars show what appears to be 4 front end links?

The other kits seem to show different sized end links

I've crawled underneath my car and it looks like the 2nd pic is more accurate where the fronts are ~15" long and the rears are ~5". I just don't see how the endlinks from the 1st pic would work.

There are 4 endlinks as you have seen. There are the tall ones in front, small in back. My guess is the first pic has a mistake and has two sets of fronts. The second pic is more accurate.

BTW: you should look into converting over to the new FE4 suspension while you're at it.

Here is what I did and noticed a big difference when driving mountain and canyon roads EP 6579 and EP 1201. I have no other suspension mods, stock tire size, Hawk ceramic brake pads, and I am at 414 RWHP. I can carve winding canyon roads harder than my brakes and tires can handle. I am going with more bushings, ZL1 style sways and coilovers for wither Pfadt or Pedders, or a combo of parts from both next. I, like you use my camaro as a daily and commuter driver and here in So Cal we have a lot of canyon roads that are a blast to tear up.

I'm still trying to figure out how to get the swaybars and endlinks that I want, the challenge comes from finding a way to pay for them without adding more debt to the credit cards...

I've installed the EP1201 inserts and noticed a subtle difference in the handling, and am in the process of acquiring the EP6579's. I will probably add the EP 2112 (steering rack bushing) to the mix when I get the sways, just because it seems like an inexpensive upgrade to do while I have the front disassembled and in need of an alignment.

Does 0% Debt sound Better?
