gonna install pedders sway and coilovers

getting ready to drop off car and get sways ,coilovers, diff bushings,upper control arm inners, rear control /toe link..and a few other things...i have been reading brds and hearing about problems installing sways...do i need to know anything b4 i drop off car.. i know my shop has done a ton of coilovers , but not sure of sways...ANYTHING instructional i need to print out or call pedders, to install these parts..i read about having to make bump stops somewhere...any help is appreciated...thanks "Yes, I've been told the front swaybar movement has been resolved. New front clamps from the latest shipment from Australia will be sent to me this week. Bolt-in solution that does not need customer modification, from what I've been told. I guess new swaybar manufacturing and/or specs needed new R&D to address movement issues. Just like the revised installation instructions for the end-links that are shorter than stock. " these are not in my sway kit...things like this is what are holding me up..been sitting on this susp kit for 3 weeks and everytime i get ready to install , i need something else... if i need these, can i go ahead and get kit put on and add these afterwards without a problem. and can pete help me out , since these should be included in sways? thanks again

Of everything I think sway bars would be the least of your worries. There are instructions for the coilovers on PDF on the internet, but I figured they came in the box. So it should be a problem. It sounds like you're going to have the set up of set ups man! I'm very happy for you.

You'll find the end links in the box with the bushings... They look similar to this:


With the Pedders XA coilovers, bumpstop is not an issue. You can adjust them to full drop and still have full shock compression/rebound. Do NOT use an impact wrench on the coilover install.

You have the rear cradle bushing inserts, they can be installed without completely removing the cradle.

I think Mike may have a DIY write-up on installing the pumpkin bushings.

You have the full alignment bolt kit, it requires some drilling and/or grinding... Mike can explain.

The front arm bushings should be no problem for an alignment shop that replaces bushings.

You have a sweet Pedders kit, should make those winding Florida back roads a lot more fun to drive

Adaptor spacer plate for the front swaybar stop clamp brackets should arrive in warehouse Friday. I am waiting on these to address movement on my front swaybar. Just need to replace old bracket/bushing with the rear kit stops(picture below) and add the new spacer plate to address clamp/frame clearance.

Your shop should be aware of this.

I have XAs, swaybarB, front radius rod bushing, rear cradle insert, rear diff bushings, and alignment kit(bolts). Dropped little over 1" all around. Similar build to yours, minus the rear trailing arm bushings.

Overall, I like the improvements with this setup.

mike , my mounts are similar to the one pic above , except yellow bushings?, i would assume red is correct color as every other pedder part is red..also no 2 piece clamp. basically looks like your everday sway bracket..thanks

i like them but just to afraid after dropping 1 1/2in the tires might rub with the 20mm offset..and the fact that 285 would def be max tire width if they did fit... looking at the lorenzo, as jon @ best wheels said he will see if he can paint my color combo, and i can prob squeeze some 305,s under..we,ll see. lx15 and lorenzo are my 2 pics ..

Pedders runs 305s with a good offset (that I don't know); but they're on 19s... short tire.

Your wheel company should have the data necessary to advise you on fitment. With a great fitment, you can go quite large on the tires.

so exciting times are coming for you for sure.

Great chatting with you tonight

We have a permenant outstanding fix for the fitment. Our fix keeps the geometry of the swaybars in the most ideal location for maximum control.

All parts have been shipped out that we have been contacted on.

We now have a large inventory of sway bars with all the upgraded components.

Here is a link for a Pedder Solution B sales speciial

I've been told the spacers shipped out on 7/21. Pedders typically ship UPS Ground so I expect it here possibly by next Friday(6-10 bus. days). Will provide update later. Almost done. When I do FI, will address trailing arm/bushings. Still undecided at the various options. (Pedders, Pfadt, BMR, Spohn)

I'm guessing the spacers shouldn't change geometry that much so I won't affect alignment. I've been told my fabricated version is similar to the Pedders version. I didn't finish prep/painting it since Pedders is providing a permanent fix. Here's what I started to make...

mike they had car put together today and aligned, thing looked awsome.. they did recieve the shims last week and installed them ..question 1 , they used the yellow bushings , are they EXACTLY same just different color? if not i will have them swap out the red... question 2..i did recieve a box today with the 2 red mounts and clamps and will be dropping them off tomorrow...but i only recieve 2 red bushing mounts , so this would not be able to do both sways..i have no problem using the yellow if they are only cosmetic..what do i do?? with my gfx ,you would need to slide a mirror under to see anything..they will swap ,no problem.i told them to hold off...but they wanted to get everything dialed in and aligned today..: it was there 1st full pedders kit .THEY THOUGHT IT WAS AWESOME after they dialed it in.{ they took some test runs} .alignment bolts were great they said and when i asked how it campared to pfadt { they have done a couple} they said they were impressed and for the value{ price comparison} would def recommend pedders over pfadt...this was THERE opinion...overall they were impressed in launch , handling and alignment..thanks again mike and let me know about bushing swap out
