Seems like Ridetech may be good, not much out yet so the jury's still out. I know JDP has them on one of their cars.

Also KW looks promising, Varient 3 and their clubsports

I'm hoping i dont have issues with my Pedders, at least not until they are back up and running in the US again.

I would look at Bilstein PSS10's. Bilstein won't be going any where and there are a ton of authorized shops that can service and custom valve them to your needs. Bilstein themselves offer extensive rebuild and custom application services.

I'm going to look into the V3's and the clubsports. I'm trying to determine if they are as of the same quality as pfadts setup..

I'm looking to get some also. I'm thinking the KW but I want to ride in a car that has a set installed on them first.

Not as easy to change settings. Same or better quality. KW is legit they are not going anywhere. They dont make any money on camaros hahaha...zee Germans!

Clubsports are top of the line stuff...wish i got them. All that said the variant 3 are amazing and continue to over deliver.
