That's disappointing.

Side question, how come no one comes up with adjustable top mounts, kind of like Pedders did.

How are people adjusting camber on the front, and rear for that matter?

This is great news, the first suspension mod done to my car was Pfadt springs then sways. I have zero desire to change them, because they are perfect in every way. Very glad to see Apex moving with these great items.

Chase I'm curious to know the Sway bars you guys will sell will they be the same design as the Pfadt ZL spec ones!?

I had bought me a set for my project, but damn UPS lost the package just a day before I got them. So pretty much it looks like I'll have to find a new alternative.

Ok so I also got a Set of the Pfadt Front sway bar end links . Will those still work with the sway bars you are planning to make and sell!?

Yes, they will be completely unchanged. You should have no problems using the Pfadt end inks.

Not completely true. Lio, if you got a hold of a set that were for the earlier Pfadt racing sways, they will have the 10mm heim joint on both ends. For the ZL Spec sway you need the 12mm thread. The bar uses the 12mm hole like the ZL1 does. The end links that came with the ZL1 Spec bars had 10mm on one end and 12mm on the other. The 10mm hole is for attaching to the strut. The ZL1 end links are 12mm on both ends and some guys just drill the strut hole larger. I believe you have the Pfadt coil overs so you have the 10mm hole.

Other than the heim joint thread size they are the same.

The box and instructions said they were the Pfadt front end links for the ZL spec sway bars

It this ones. But just the fronts

I bought the last set from JDP 3 weeks ago. Brand new for $100 shipped and the only bad thing is that is only the front ones. What can I do for the rear ones?

Any recommendations or will stick rear ones work !?

You don't need the rears. Only the FE3's do. You are good to go when you do get the sways.

Great I just have to see if UPS finally funds the lost package. Or wait for Apex to develop theirs so that I can buy them from them

Thanks again Chase, and thanks to Paul who's going to email me the alignment info and install instructions!
I will make a thread and report the results with pictures as soon as I install!

Not 100% certain but hopefully not too long. Like to get them out around early July but we will see.

When we told them, "Make no changes, keep them exactly the same" they took it very literally. After this production run they will not have that.

Oh boy hopefully by July or before. I got the money ready please message me or something when you get an answer. I had bought a set of rear and front Pfadt ZL spec sway bars from a member and damn UPS lost them. It's been two weeks since the investigation to find them and no answer. I'm quite sure someone stole them.

The sad thing is that I need them for my project. And I want to do all at once . So I'll have to wait.

Hopefully the first sway bars get the Pfadt and apex logo

I just started installing the rears and I wasn't expecting to need to compress the drop springs because I thought they would be shorter than the stock ones like the DIY on here states. They actually seemed a little longer. Anyone else notice this. Hope I have the right ones. I'll continue to install the rest and time the bushings. Hopefully they settle.
