No news yet! Check around with vendors for availability but I doubt anyone has them.

Just for information I have a blown one on rear and haven't heard anything from them after more than 6 attempts to contact them so you make the decision. I don't know how they will remain in business in the future if they get their issues resolved a lot of customer service issues to get past.

You email Australia? Looks like the only option for us for now. Or have a shop rebuild them I guess

ok thanks guys. It is because the XA's had some pretty great reviews on this site and I think for $1700 its a fair price. Would I prefer the pfadts, YES but its an extra $800.

Hi yes I emailed Pedders AU but as of today have not received anything from them either. I can't believe whatever is going on, they would fold a good company over a disagreement. I don't get it maybe someday we'll know a part of it

Yes baffling. Think you would hear from AUS as it is their product that went bad and would help out. Then again my New Zealand friend thinks of them as cousins no one speaks highly of...lol

XA's if you can find them. I realize Pedders has been silent but he is under a gag order for everything. I'm sure once things are worked out he will be back with his usual level of support. I know that's no consolation for GREYLS3SS who's car is down. I do feel for ya.

I do hope Pete and his crew come out okay but it is frustrating. I am giving it another month then parting out all my aftermarket stuff and putting the car back to stock. So I may have lots of suspension parts, CAI, Headers, for sell. While I love my car I don't think I will enjoy it near as much with the stock parts so may have to go another direction.

If I were in your position I would contact BC Racing and explain the situation. If in fact, as rumor has it, they manufacture Pedders, they may be able to ship you a replacement cartridge. I know they will ship replacement cartridges for thier own coilovers for $95 each that are fairly simple to install. This was a big plus when I got mine. It's worth a try.

good idea if they have the replacements, I saw something on the factory in Taiwan that makes theirs and others, but Pedders wasnt one of them.l'm gussing here, but the clevis, and body may be made there but the valving and all the rest may be made elsewhere, or there,
and all assembled in Australia.
One person had them rebuilt by a shop that does that and worked out o.k.

Thank you very much I will research that for an option and contact them another reason to visit the forum to get ideas.
Have a great New Year and hope the rubber stays on the road
