I ordered the Pfadt exhaust bearings seperate.

The paint getting done is warranty stuff from under the rear spoiler.

Do yourself a favor. Follow dms advice and disconect the items he stated.

I shit a brick too after i noticed that, i was likee hmm everything looks fine, test drove it and figured it to be normal.
Ya, I freaked out big time. I noticed it on the second side before I reassembled the rest of the wheel. I called Junkie and he said it would be fine. I called Pfadt and they said it was normal. STILL was freaked. Called Scott to go out to his car and look at his. He's never touched it so I knew it would be a good example. He had the same gap.

Heck, I'm STILL kinda uneasy.

post up PQ!
I got a video of the install I'm trying to get up. Should post it later today. May be kinda lame but I'll post it anyway.

I swear PQ is the biggest frikkin tease on the board.........LOL.

He will keep saying he's got pictures and even a video and take 3 days to post em! And then he says the video might be lame.

Its like The Champagne Room. Stripper says, "Lets have some fun in the Champagne room" you ask"what kind of fun?" she says "Whatever you like, honey" Then you get there and are out 100 bucks for a $25 lap dance. LOLOLOLOLOLOL.

Loaded it for a couple hours lastnight and it rejected it. Gotta do 2. It won't take over 10 minutes at a time.

Working on it.

Spike, I sent it to you but it cut off and you only have a few minutes. Grrrrrrr

PQ, great job tackling this and working through all the issues, I know a lot of folks that wouldn't even dare to tackle something like this, you also provided me with a few laughs as you panicked . I too thought the front stock sway bar was a PITA and gave up after about 10 minutes and just took my 12 amp sawzall to it...



I only have the Pfadt front and rear sways installed now and noticed an immediate difference in decreased body roll and the rear end wanting to "sit down" as opposed to the inside rear of the car wanting to rise up. I think with the addition of the springs you'll be very happy with the end result, I myself am waiting on coilovers and did a brief write-up on the sway bars I installed yesterday. No intention of thread jacking but it is at least a thread with some feedback on how the car feels with only sway bars and no other suspension mods... http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=64099

Once again, great job PQ, now I just want to see your write-up when you install the camshaft and SuperCharger yourself... you know you're on the hook now to do it now that you are a seasoned DIYer

I do have the bug. Hell, I need to make sure I use all those damn tools I bought. lmao

I got a video that if nothing else could be somewhat entertaining. It's just so big I have to cut it in half to get it onto You Tube. I'm working on it now. Spike is gonna help. I'm actually in the process of sending it to him.

I'mma check out your write up.

LMAO at the picture of your bar cut in half. I was SOOOOOOO close to it but wasn't sure I would be able to get the new one in. lol
