They are from Australia. I met a few of them late last year, really good people. Email JusticePete, dms. They will give you good, logical answers backed with data.

I know the company is founded and based out of Australia, but I'm wondering where the coilovers are made.

They are made in Australia, they have been building parts for the GTO Zeta platform since its inception. The Gto was developed and built in Aus. as was a lot of the development for the zeta2 which carries our Camaro.
I would not let where their parts are made sway you on a purchase. The Camaro is assembled in Canada, with parts from all over the world including Aus, Mexico, China ect.... Hell the General Motors is as of now owned by the US & Canadian governments, with the bulk of the rest by the Labor unions.
As sad as it sounds, the days of "Buy American" will not get us much anymore, as about 30% of our food is even imported. I don't like it but it is a reality.
At least Aus has always been a good ally to us and shares many of our own conservetive values as a country.

I smell something fishy in here.


If you Insist on everything you buy being made in the USA, buy someone else's product, because Pedders is AU based and global manufactured.

..... Also be prepared to walk around barefoot and naked.
(Look at the label on your clothes.)

If you're just trying to pick a fight between manufacturers, stop now please.

Know what really surprises me? I've beat on Stanley thermoses for 25 years, (Yes I used one as a hammer once, also had one skip on the pavement at 55 mph) Look on the bottom, it says "made in China" I'll still buy another one.

Quality knows no boundary.

I said nothing about insisting on buying only USA products. I said nothing that is "fishy". I said nothing to pick a fight between manufacturers.

I only asked a simple question... WHERE ARE THEY MADE?

I could not find any answers on their site. So I figured since the Pedders guys promote their products on here very actively, they would be able to provide a solid answer.

Doesn't EVERYONE have a right to know where a product is made? That is why I posted here. I would like to know and I'm sure others on here would like to know as well.

Then why haven't you PM'd or called them? Between a previous 'jab' from a competitor in another thread, and you insisting they publicly announce where their product is made = fishy.

Considering the comments from other posters, you're the only one that doesn't smell it.

Previous "jab"?? I don't know what you are talking about there.

And dude, get it straight, I just asked a question. I did not call them out in any way.

I haven't PMed or called b/c like I said earlier, I see the pedders guys on here in every thread where their product is mentioned providing info for everyone to learn more about their product. Why should this thread be different? I have a valid question about their product that I felt others on here might want to know the answer to as well.

You're telling me that it is "fishy" for a potential customer to ask where a company's product is made?

If anything, your posts in this thread have made it sound "fishy"... Like there is something to hide here. I never implied anything like that. I just wanted to know WHERE THEY ARE MADE? This IS an open forum right?? I CAN ask questions right??

I guess you have a problem with hitting the "About Us" button on the top of the Pedders USA site. Here I will post it for as you seem a little "Fishy" and may have trouble finding it.

http://www.peddersusa.com/aboutUs/5

Now I would suggest dropping the about wanting them to post up. It is very common knowledge where they are made and based out of. This forum has been a wealth of knowledge for myself and many others, even the manufactures for the most part put aside the competitor thing to help in any way possible.
Time to go trolling for drama somewhere else!

I read all of that. That was the first place I looked. Their wasn't a definitive answer.

Why is this turning into such a heated thread towards me??? I am not trying to hurt pedders reputation or product in any way. I have not mentioned any competitor's name. NOTHING. There is no BS here and no drama on my part.

WHERE ARE THEY MADE? That was my only question.

Just looking for a good solid answer... ya know, like a "MADE IN ____" label on the box or coilover itself.

How come this isn't clear??? They're made in AUSTRALIA. If you've read any of Pete's or DMS's threads where they talk about product availability and development they are quite up front and honest about the fact the stuff comes from Australia.

Are they entirely manufactured in-house at Pedders in Australia? Are components outsourced and then the assembly takes place at pedders? What is made where? This is what I want to know. Hopefully one of the Pedders guys can provide a confirmed, solid answer.

Like I said, i just want to know what the little "MADE IN ____" labels say.

Why do you care? If it's "that" important to you then pm them because I don't think anybody else but you cares. I have a Pedder's suspension system on my car and I could care less about whether the individual pieces are outsourced or whatever. The finished products are shipped from Australia; if that's not enough "info" for you then message Pete or Mike and ask them cause nobody else but you seems to be worried about it.

Something infinitely more valuable than that sticker, is being able to PM the man, and say, "Pete, I need help."

Nuff said about it! The Camaro itself is put together in a foreign country with parts made all over the world. If it is that important to you call or PM Pete to get the real story. The forums are not the appropriate place to try to discredit a quality manafacture and a great supporter of the site for being foreign based. What you are doing is very obvious, if you had real questions you would just pm Pete.
Where is a mod when you need one?

You all have very good points to your debate but let's not forget that the forum is here to help answer questions for everyone.

At what point did I ever try to discredit pedders? At what point did I ever imply that they outsourced their products? Go ahead, check my posts... I NEVER DID!

All I did was ask a question. I want to know more about the product. Why should I have to PM them on this specific topic? If my thread were labeled "What is the adjustment range on Pedders coilovers" I'm sure 30 people would jump in and inform as well as the pedders rep's and no one would have a problem supplying the information.

So what is so different between that type of question and the one I'm asking? You guys are completely off if you think I'm trying to bash anyone here. On an OPEN FORUM, I don't see anything wrong with my question.

Off the topic, I don't see why you couple guys are getting so heated over this. I mean, it just makes it sound like yall know but don't want to tell. I have no idea. And to your remarks, yes, I do care where things are made when its $1500.00 that I would be spending. I honestly don't know why I'm getting so much hate for this and to be honest it really turns me off to the forums when I can't even ask publicly where a vendor's product is made.

Maybe it is coincidental but both 1977 and g-town have BMC as their friend on their profiles. I highly doubt BMC would partake in this type of BS. I really think they are better than that. They are just trying to help their favorite manafacture, but this is not the right way. Let the parts speak for themselves guys. We have a lot of great manafactures of quality parts for our cars that include Pfadt, Pedders, Extreme and BMC. Pick your poison and run with it, let the performance of each speak for themselves.

I do?? Who is BMC? I just accept whoever requests.

HAHA, I don't have a favorite brand. I'm trying to research and pick out a set of coilovers for my car. I am so confused right now on where you guys are coming from.

Hey man, I am just telling you like I see it. It appears you have an agenda, at least to me. I am not picking a fight nor am I interested in bashing anyone. My suspension will be Pedders and a few Pfadt parts thrown in for good measure. If your intentions are good , just PM Pete, he is very honest and helpfull, and wont mind answering your questions. I am not the only one who got this vibe from this thread. If I am wrong handle it with Pete and post up the results of your quest.

I guess I will have to do that. I just for the life of me don't understand why one of the rep's doesn't jump in here and post where they are manufactured.

From reading PeddersUSA site, their main slogan is "NO BULL". Sooooo... thats all I was doing. Just looking for a "no bull" answer from someone who can confirm it.
