Talking What if I told you that all Pfadt parts were not gone for good?



Following the announcement that Pfadt Race Engineering was closing their doors, we were approached by them and asked if we would be interested in taking over some of their products. They felt that there was no reason that their loss couldn't be someone's gain and that Apex Motorsports was the right company to carry them on with the same level of passion and customer support that they had. So after several weeks of ironing out details, Apex Motorsports is excited to announce the resurrection of the first former Pfadt product under the Apex Motorsports brand!

Lowering spring pricing and ordering information can be found here.




  • 1.25" Drop in both the front and rear
  • Sporty handling without being harsh
  • Springs designed to work great for the V6, SS, and ZL1. Perfect for those looking to upgrade in the future!
  • Lower Center of Gravity and slightly higher spring rates for improved handling for your Camaro
  • Can be used on convertible Camaros, as well as those equipped with GFX packages
  • Engineered to optimize the factory shock absorber damping
  • Engineering design and race testing ensures the ultimate in quality and longevity
  • Made in the USA


Before




After

Chase, congratulations....I hope it all works out for you, your company, and employees...and customers....

Get the 5mm and 10mm wheel spacers, lugs and lug nuts....no-one else I could find makes them in that Pfadt style....all others are 15 and 20mm and have the dual sets of studs and lug nuts...

Again, good luck...

No, Pfadt is gone. They turned over the product designs to us and we are manufacturing them now.

We will just be sticking to the suspension parts. Hate to say but the headers are probably gone for good.

If the springs are any indication they merely bought the rights to things that were outsourced and labeled as Pfadt. So anything constructed/welded in-house will be a no-go.

Ps...we need some trailing arms now. Just sayin!

I hope this works out good for you, says a lot about the respect Pfadt has for you.

Hopefully in time you'll have the FE3-FE4 conversion with the ZL1 spec sways on the market, cradle bushings would be icing on the cake.

Camber plates coming back?

How about the camber plates for the 2.5" springs? I know a few others are looking for them as well.

Thanks everyone. We were very excited and honored when they came to us with the opportunity. We are going to take it slow and not bite off more than we can chew. It would be very easy to over reach and make the same mistake that Pfadt made. Right now we are not going to give any specifics except to say that more products are coming.
