^^^ Perhaps leave a color choice option when purchasing for a small upcharge? That way, those of us who don't care what color our suspension is can get the "off the shelf" piece for less...

Just a thought.

The main problem with that is most anodizing companies have minimum charges, usually around the $100 range, so possibly two color choices might not be a bad idea, or one color and raw. The other thing anodizing does is harden the surface and prevent corrosion.

Exactly. Color options add a lot of cost and complexity. We will be sticking with one color.

My suggestion goes to black anodized and clear anodized. Just my $0.02

I guess I'll go ahead and say it, I am the one making the bushings shown above for Apex, and I *AM* working on the camber plates now, at least for stock struts. However, I can't say for sure if I will actually produce them or not, based on costs and such.

It could be done, but it ain't cheap.

We are leaning towards keeping them in that signature Pfadt orange but are open to suggestions.
Nobody's done a cobalt blue that I know of, it would look great and stand out from the rest.

having them polished and then clear anodized gives a really nice, lustrous look to them. This how the OZMO billet pieces are done, and we will be giving the same treatment to several parts in the engine bay.

We have been debating doing that to our catch cans. OZMO's stuff gives me a stiffy.

Cool at least I have hope. I won't be using non GM suspension so the stock struts kit works for me. Project 1LE/R coming soon...............
