I had to join the military before I finished school... So, I definitely had some good times in my 20's...

I didn't finish my degree until I was in my early 30's.... Needed to get my head on straight... First time around it didn't go so well...

Hi Pete,
Those are hot! Got a pic with them on the car?

what is the backspacing? same BS front and rear? do you know what the weight is per tire/rim combo mounted?

Man, I want your job! you get to play with the good stuff!

I just get to PAY for the goods.

I hear that a lot. Make no mistake about it, I do have fun at Pedders. There are days just like any other business that make you want to pull your hair out, but I love what I do. I can also assure you that no retail customer will ever come close to paying what I pay for a suspension. My cost is literally 100s of times higher than your cost at full retail because we have to develop all the bits. Each vehicle platform we support takes big bucks to get started. Obviously we wouldn't do it if we didn't feel we could make a profit at it. This year we invested more money than I care to think about in new product development. That is the bad news. The good news i that the Camaro project i doing very well at retail and is just about 100% complete from an R & D perspective. We'll nail down the final sway bar diameters shortly as finish our testing with the new tire and wheel package.
