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

Your shop should be aware of this.

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

Just got the spacers in the mail today. They look great as compared to my backyard butchered pieces. I can finish off the front before car goes into body shop.

OT,
Mike, was that you in the Street Customs 69 GTO body on a 2006 chassis episoide? Now, that car looked great, except for the star logos. Classic looks with a modern rolling chassis and interior. Hate to see the price tag. Should've gotten a 2010 Challenger or Camaro. (Mopar deserves respect, too)

What's the purpose for the spacers? Is it to raise the d-bushings up to fit the clamps better next to the frame? I just ground the clamps down to slide between the swaybar and frame.

I'm sorry - I'm lost...

Are these spacers supposed to be used with the clamps or are these supposed to take the place of the clamps? Also, I'm a little confused with the new Solution B swaybars - are they revised further?

Thanks everyone

Me too, I got the clamps with mine and had to grind the bottoms down to fit between the bar and frame. This is the first I've seen of the spacers.

It's my fault you didn't get everything in a timely manner, I knew there was a fix coming but never got with Mike.

Use the yellow and if anyone asks, tell them you have Pedders custom fabbed skunkworks bars

The spacers are to be used with the clamps so no modification of the clamp is necessary due to the very close tolerances of the bar to the subframe

Hope that helps

No that was Pete. He gets all the fun stuff! LOL The build was quite cool and drove seriously well!. They had the GTO on display at SEMA. It always amazes me that talent and creativity we see with so many of the outstanding builders.
