Talking Apex Reviving Pfadt Suspension Products!



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 ZL1 Mag-Ride dampers. 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

Awesome Chase. Another vote for the headers from me also. Not sure if I can make it up the driveway an inch lower, time to go measure.

We knew there would be a lot of interest in headers. For the time being we will be focusing on suspension.

Sorry Karen, but the coil overs are not happening. RideTech is the way to go. They will be at our Open House next month so you can pick their brain.

We will not be bringing back the entire product line but select parts as cash flow allows. We do not want to fall into the same trap that they did and try to do too much too fast.

Yes, I had less than 3000 miles on my car before switching to them. Ride quality feels like stock with the mag ride, but the look is much better (my car in the first post). I never really did hard cornering in the car before hand, but these springs did great at Putnam Race Park (1:22.13 was my fastest lap which isn't bad for the first time being there) and at the Tail of the Dragon.

Chase, we need to talk.

So I love the ride of my ZL1 but want it lower. I was going to buy Eibach Because I was told it was as close to stock ride as you could get. But they only drop the ZL1 like 1/2 a inch. I would really hate to buy these from Apex and then be disappointed in the ride. Are there any thoughts?
