I will order a set of these once someone can tell me if they work with the Pedders camber plates. I dont trust my Pedders supercars not that we no longer have support. I need to have a spare set standing by.

Cant you just go through BC Racing if you had probs with those supercars? The pedders stuff is made by the same company in taiwan...just has a huge markup and different colors basically. Same thing with the megan coilovers. And petty racing coilovers

There's a outfit here in Kali that can rebuild them if they leak. BC racing I here not great at customer service but may. And no Pedders are not the same internally as the others. You get what you pay for. 10000 miles on mine on alot of bad roads and alot of auto crossing and no problems

If you opt to get the Top Bearing Mount it gives you an option to go from a standard Camber (-1.2) to add -2 degrees more by just removing 3 Allen Screws, Turning the Cap, and then Re-Inserting the 3 Allen Screws. So during everday drive you leave it at the Center position and when you go to the Track spend the 15mins to change the position to neg -2 degress more. Works great.

Everything from Pedders, from alignment bolts ($100/set!!!) to their permagrin 1LE kit ($1000 for 1 sway and a few bushings?) to coilovers, are way overpriced. There is a clear pattern here. There are times where you get what you paid for, but it strongly feels like not this time.

BC manufactures a vast majority of coilovers to different specs. Hopefully, Pedders had high specs, but it's hard to be sure. BC Racing ER coilovers actually look to be very high quality, and they look to be what supercar coilovers are based on, at half the price.

The ride quality far exceeds what I expected. Fronts are set at 20 and rear at 23 to start, and it feels really well balanced and responsive. Started at 20 and 20, but brought rears up a little. My neighbor helped me do the install he's driving instructor and races a BMW M, let him take for a spin. He too was very impressed. Will continue to play with different settings, excited for AutoX to start up again.

Awesome! Just what I wanted to hear! I can't wait for AutoX to start up again either! Thinking about going down to Vegas for one of their events as they race year round. I would think you guys would have year round events in GA or FL?

Yeah they were all pricey but better then most component wise vs other mfgs or seem to be at ,east. The BC ER units arent the same as the supercars in construction and most important sizewize where it counts, or not, depending what you need them for.I got one of the last ssts of suppercars at a killer price so jumped on it, if not for that I wouldnt have bought them do to the high price. If doing them now I would just do Ridetechs single adjustables after riding in a friends car

I think you're mixing up ER with BR, since ER is large monotube, identical to supercars. Either way, enjoy your car; you seem to have a decent setup : )
