Pfadt Coilovers Trailing Arms Install

Last Week East Coast Supercharging installed my Pfadt Coilovers, Trailing Arms, Endlinks (they had installed the Pfadt Sport Sway Bars back in January) and Control Arm Stiffeners. Just had a four wheel alignment done Friday.

I can feel the difference in the rear end - feels more connected to the road. I set the dampers at 10 for a performance street feel and the ride was lowered 1.25 inches front, 1 inch rear for a slight leaning forward stance.

Special thanks to Aaron for all his help answering my pm's (he'll notice the Pfadt Racing Engineering decal on my rear window), and to Chris and Tech Tom at East Coast Supercharging - you guys are the best.

Here's the pics - sorry for the quality of the undercarriage views

Can you post a few more pix of the car stance from a distance with the wheels straight? I'm getting ready to install coilovers also, and trying to determine drop.

Looks great. How do you adjust the rear shocks? Is it through the hole in the control arm? I couldn't see the adjuster knob from your pics. Nice color btw. haha.

Keep us posted on how the handling & street-ability is over the next few hundred miles.

I like the setup.

Thanks - some more angles below (note the pic in my signature is before the install):

The rear coilover's damper adjustment is on the bottom which is tucked into the lower control arm so a bit of a challenge to adjust especially if you have big paws. So far the "10" setting for Sporty Street is A-OK. Here's the link to the install / settings instructions - http://www.pfadtracing.com/blog/wp-c...stallation.pdf
