I believe he can. We stayed up that late at the fest. In fact, me and he were two of the last three up. Along with Kyle.

OK A question on your car. You have the Pfadt swyas and lowering springs correct?

Did you also install the rear suspension bushing inserts?

Yes, that is correct.

And no, no bushing inserts. Just the simple springs and sways.

Have you had any issues with the suspension? The reason I am asking is that there was another thread where a Pedders guy was basically saying that the rear sways are a waste and a better solution would be to add rear bushing inserts. So I just wanted to ask someone who actually had the sways and lowering springs.

I have the Pfadt springs, sways, and end links. I also put in Pfadt trailing arms. I didn't do the bushings either. I think they make the ride a bit stiffer and I don't think I really would gain much by getting them. I might reconsider them at some point if I ever do any racing (which I'm not planning to do as of now).

Not sure about the sways not being that much more effective in the rear. I can tell you that when mine came undone I never really knew till I noticed. I'm under my car enough it doesn't take too for me to notice stuff.

If Pete Basica said it, you can take it to the bank. He's the best suspension guru we have on the site.

I wasn't doubting, just looking for an opinion from someone who has installed what I am fixing to install. PQ and Emma have been pretty straight up with me, that's all, nothing personal.

Well put, that's why I was asking the question to PQ and Em, just a different opinion and since they have always been honest with me, like you, I thought it was good. Not trying to stir the pot>

No offense taken, and no offense intended.... The reason I say Pete is the go to guy on forum, is because of his time spent helping folks publicly.

Compare the bold stats to the others. Granted, some posts are sales info, but the majority of his posts are very informative.

Nope. OEM end links. Still have OEM.

Yes, one came loose, TWICE. Luckily I had a bolt that would fit the first time, and GTAHVIT had a bolt that fit the second.

I check them almost on a daily basis now.
