Awesome news. I'm running Pfadt springs and they're awesome. If you wanna fill in those wheel wells, they're a great place to start!!



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.

Better verify they clear the 1LE outer CV boot. I installed 1LE/ZL1 hubs with the 1LE axles on my SS. I cannot use the inner hole because the bar ends will contact the boots. I called Pfadt about it but this was right when they introduced them. Only suggestion they had was play the shim game on the sway bar straps. You should have no problem on any SS that doesn't have the 1LE axles. The CVs are smaller.

This picture is with the end link extended up by use of a spacer where it attaches to the LCA. Otherwise it was even worse on clearance.

Thanks for the heads up dude. How much hp do you think this axles can handle?
