Car is not much good with only 3 shocks and can't mix with another companies. Pete's name is not even listed in the call directory now so not even sure if he even works there anymore. very frustrating if I knew in a month I could get it replaced I would wait not knowing causes stress
Are good products, top notch. Pete probably cant respond due to legal stuff. Sucks for all of us

Pedders stuff is excellent quality. They were my 1st choice when I tried to get everything upgraded this year. Unfortunately, when I was ready to order they were already tied up in this mess and wasn't able to fulfill the order.

Man this just sucks! Pete went out of his way to support my suspension build, answered a zillion questions. The Pedders suspension that I run performs flawlessly.

Pete, I'm rooting for you to bounce back, and hope that Pedders will continue to be offered here in the USA.

Same situation here. I knew I was thinking of trading my RS about mid August and did so on the 31st. I told the local retail dealer to get my parts ready and they said they would but couldn't. I was last September I was still riding and getting nose bleeds and it was suggested that I may want to go another route and I ended up going with DSE per recommendation. Comparable in price with Pedder's and great reviews. Thus far I have no regrets.....

What I heard quoted for the DSE coilovers was quite a bit more than the Supercars...but they are great quality product from the ones I know that have them.

http://shop.jrishocks.com/product.ph...cat=274&page=1 DSE $6k

http://www.peddersusa.com/product/Ca...rcar-Coilovers Pedders $4k

I doubt it's "over" I'm confident that Pedders USA and Pedders AU are going to come to a conclusion that will result in availability to US customers.

I would like for Pete and Debbie to come out okay from what ever is going on.

If not, it won't be a stretch to imagine Pedders AU finding another US distributor.

Well after much frustration not hearing anything from Pedders US I sent Pedders AU an email wanting to know what is up and if they will resolve the issues in the US. Not sure if I will get a response but My car is basically useless with only 3 working shocks. I was going to go with Pfadt but they weren't ready yet and kept pushing the availability date back when I was looking, and Pedders had what I needed. Guess I should have waited. The frustrating issue with me is that I have not had one correspondence from Pedders US to the 6 + inquires I have written or called. If they are out of business then at least they should list it on their website or their phone mail not just keep saying leave a message and we'll get back to you. I even have a ticket # from their website that has never been followed up on. I know people have posted that Pete probably can't answer, but come on really he could send a PM saying he can't respond that would at least be something. I AM VERY DISAPOINTED and am thinking about just putting my stock shocks back on. Pete or whoever at least a PM saying you can't respond right now would go along way to easing the stress. I can't even sell 3 shocks either so I guess I just have some wall ornament's for the garage.

All I can say is either wait or move on.

I hate it when people trash other peoples reputations when they know NOTHING about them.

Pete and his wife have done amazing things for the us and THE CAMARO community. He has done a LOT with GM. Who was the first to put 19" 305's on ALL FOUR CORNERS? Now what does the Z28 have? He works with GM, who was the first one to get the GMPP logo on their product? PEDDERS

Pete has giving us so much information to help make our cars better. If he isn't responding, there is a reason. Either pray for them, wish for the best, or keep your uniformed emotional responses to yourself.

So if I want to duplicate the 32mm bar used in the Permagrin package which other vendor has something similar? I plan on making my own solid rear cradle bushings, similar to Phadt's, so for the sway bar and front trailing arm bush I will need to find other sources.

I would contact wretched motor sports or back street performance, or some other Pedders Distributor. They might have those items in stock.

If someone is looking for Pedders stuff email me rob@wretchedms.com
I may or may not be able to help, but sometimes i've been known to pull things out of places they shouldn't be.
Not making any promises, but i'll do what i can.

Note: If you have placed orders with other vendors or through Pedders directly, you will have to wait for them to work through things for you, as that is out of my hands.

I've been VERY weary of posting/replying to anything on Camaro5 due to the supply issues, and when ever i would post i would get hate sent my way in the form of people looking for parts that they paid someone else for. If you have something bad to say about someone or something don't send it my way as it will be ignored, I've got enough of that to deal with already.

It's a great competitive market....If word was out that Pedders is done, I think we'd see a big spike in costs with the other brands....That hasn't happened that I've seen....My guess is Pedders will be back, or are not really gone in the first place....

Good point. Thankfully my 1LE handles well already. I most likely can wait out for them to fix what's up.

I just wanted to come in and let you guys know I'm still following this as best I can. I don't have any "inside man" giving me information or anything, but I am keeping an ear to the ground looking for news.

I did have a thought, though. A company involved in any legal discussion might not be at liberty to talk about the subject while this is getting handled. It doesn't make you or me feel any better about it, but it might not be their fault. Those sorts of things are up to lawyers and judges, not us.

As I've said previously, I would consider Pedders suspension parts of outstanding quality and certainly worthy of placement on my own Camaro, but if I were in the market right now, not knowing how long this could last, I would at least consider other options.

Let's not jump to conclusions. We all know that courts are notoriously thorough, and that means they are slow in handling their business. It affects all of us in here somehow, and I hope it works out for the best.

Keep the faith.
