if sways walk , they can rub in specific areas..spacers are used to keep all clearances intact

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

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)
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.

Revised Pedders Sway Bar Install Sheet for Camaro

Below is our revised Pedders Sway bar Installation Instructions. We have updated them for the front and rear locking collars, and front spacers to adjust for clearances for the collars.





Here is a closer shot of the front bracket assembly. The larger face of the bushing points inward. The spacer pictured is our prototype. The actual unit is color matched



Here is a closer look at the bracket assembly as it would appear installed



Why has Pedders gone thru all this effort? The concerns are welding collars on a piece of spring steel at a very stressed area with bar deflection, can create weakness in that area. We are being very picky about it, but this is our concern. Adding the spacers allows perfect clearance, good geometry, and easiness of installation.

thanks to all

mike

Thanks - I believe that makes your concerns very clear as far as why you went this direction.

I was going to be a smart @$$ and post a pic' of those brakes on your Pedders car, but I don't have one with those brakes Good call on that - it makes total sense, to me, for them to use those. I wonder if they're going to keep the rear binders and rotors though; I imagine they'd be just fine. KUDOs to you guys.

BTW - I got a day-long ride in Mindz's car, with your Xas, and, umm... yeah - that was bad @$$!!! Not once did I feel the suspension crash and bottom out. There was one on-ramp, in particular, where he rolled onto the throttle, right in the middle of it, and we rode over a huge dip and it didn't upset the car one, single bit. I thought for SURE we were going to slide right across the freeway into the median, but shit - we didn't. That f'ing car seemed to bite harder the faster we went through the curve, and it didn't even have the complete content of one of your solutions. I'm sold now - without a doubt. Z28 is going to have to handle like one bad SOB in order for me to not work really hard to go with some Xas/Supercars!

Thank you for the complement! Pedders works hard at making the Camaro the best we can and will continue this process for a long time!

I have been waiting for someone to comment on the brakes and the picture for a while. Also, I am not surprised on how many guys I have chatted with that are like you and waiting for the Z28! Have one guy who already has already installed a complete Pedders track kit, and loves it. But will trade it in for the Z28 because he has to have the best! The Z28 will be soooooo cool!

Well - even on a car that didn't have the full complement of your catalog on it, I was more suprised than I can express. KUDOs to you guys

Well - in Post 6 I didn't really suggest where I've seen those before, but those were one of the things I looked at first, lol
