Pfadt drop springs & sway bars installed!

WOW.

Honestly, I really wasn't upset with the way the car handled before, I was pretty happy with it actually. But now...the car feels like it's glued to the road...no more leaning around curves but not harsh at all. Looks better as well.

Thanks to Corvette's of Westchester and Chuck CoW for the install (and Pfadt...of course).

BEFORE...front.


AFTER...front.


BEFORE...rear.


AFTER...rear.

REAR sway bar comparison...

Car looks great! The Pfadt springs give it a great stance. We have them on our car and love them. Enjoy!!

put some more miles on the car today...the perfect way to explain how it feels now...it feels smaller.

That really looks nice! I was looking at the Pfadt website and as I understand it the drop springs are adjustable from a 1" to 1.25" drop. Which is yours set to? The ride height to me looks perfect. Thanks for any info!

I would be interested in a group buy.
Did you install these yourself ?
Is it a big job and do you need alignment after?

just a little more firm, but not bad over potholes. Not harsh at all.
